THE PYRAMID CLAIMS
I kind of like the pyramid claims I
read about once : way before Homer,
way before the once we read about after.
They were placed here by a magic hand,
from afar - landing but for a moment in
their own time, but like twenty years in ours.
Hard, besoiled labor, in an instant. They left
without doing a thing, but, in turn, they left
us, all, with implanted stories of the great
stress and turmoil it must have taken to
make up those grandest of mysteries.
(And, anyway, they're only a waking image,
and not really there at all).
