A Green Parthenon

The Titans; ho!
12 feet hewn.
Children of snaking
Saturn’s lisping
sliding tongue.

Clumping and stamp
this ensuing
melee. As modern
man survives from
the sinews
of Zeus; creepers scale
the satyr’s hoof.
Dances to extinction
in the host convoluted heavens

Before the Neandertholic,
the upright steles;
of ancient kingship dials.
Record of harmony
and constellations,
revolving and
evolve to us.

Pragmatic science, greening
the logos of the
third eye, sublimated
by the fields, of shifting
reasoned speculation.
Swathes of Robots, compute
the loss of the
ancient reminders.
