Remember Delphi







Remember when we

were in Delphi?

The very womb of the world.



Atop Mount


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



Remember the snake you slew?

The pit that became the Pythia’s seat?


Remember the riddle?

The one whose answer
