Solvet saeclum in favilla
Prophetess and the Warrior
if only you’d see things in truth
and not in legends and paintings
by Italian masters,
by Italian masters and Turner.
Cumae lies a long way from here;
Aeneas is long gone – or was it Apollo… .
(To ask for what? Disambiguation?)
A hard journey, to retrace the path so easily taken,
taken downwards; downwards;
the path no vision ever showed you anyway.
Does your voice still
ring in a jar?
