That which we are we are
[a dead poet said] –
love – auld reminders of a
time run by hope’s plans
[& all indecent schemings
to pay off] –
tried not to f*ck a family –
Homer’s words on incest
& other age-old stories in
Greek sit fat on tongues –
mouthfuls of cock & bull
myths –
we hear them all
passed on –
word-play in
a never-finished house
