Hear the Oracle, as though
Delphi echoed, equivocal idiom
of laconic cadence, concise
utterances warn, imminence
of transition, passing of states
revolving of our eternal life
old age brings with it: rebirth
as mulch of fallen trees feeds
like a dialogue of damp dust
ambiguous, poetic phrases
only the initiated understand.
