Then and Now

  June 5, 2009

We once were demigods.
We sat in the gloaming by the placid streams
And drank ambrosia from silver flasks,
And feasted on the hearts of sacred ibex…
Those times are long since gone.
These are the days of steamboats and dirigibles
Bisecting foaming seas and shaking skies…
