ojobox: the curious lens of memory

To remember this is like looking backwards
through a telescope
trumping the rules of depth of field.

25 January 2013

from the Book of Horns

deep in the immortal labyrinth the archer raised a crown of horns
to the altar of a dead queen
and it is written among the stars
by the same hand who wields an arrowhead dipped in red
that the ancient tyranny of love 
is the only prayer left  
that can launch a thousand ships and then bury them in tides of sand
