Outside History | Power Poetry
outside history. They keep their distance. Under them remains. a place where you found. you were human, and. a landscape in which you know you are mortal. And a time to choose between them. I have chosen: out of myth in history I move to be. part of that ordeal. who darkness is. only now reaching me from those fields, those rivers, those roads
