#63 Memory (1)

Just as the
seasons & the sun
& the position of
the other
stars start
growth in plants
& birds to
fly to imprinted

so, too, do
anniversaries of
certain incidents
in the life
of Giorgio de Chirico
cause bells
to fall silent &
fall to earth.

Antiquities weep
blood. In the
Byzantine piazzas
of the labyrinth
pigeons pause
& whisper
