Remember Delphi

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember when we

were in Delphi?

The very womb of the world.

 

 

Atop Mount

Parnassus

close to the clouds

embraced by bay trees?

 

Dolphins carried Cretans there

to built you a temple

of cool corinthinan and doric columns

that reached up to the heavens

 

Remember how we chased each other through the woods

till we collapsed into each other

breathless

 

Remember the snake you slew?

The pit that became the Pythia’s seat?

 

Remember the riddle?

The one whose answer

we both

already

knew?
