three rocks from the river
of pericles

talisman of time
unbreakable memory
society’s weapon

you can always
refuse to choose but
you will be followed

return to the mountain
live with rubble
carve your freedom

One Response to “three rocks from the river

  • grapeling Says:

    profound. so rare to see Pericles mentioned. the classics and their lessons are being forgotten – buried in an avalanche of now-now-now, aren’t they?

I cherish your comments...
