Shadows of History

venice-2014-01

history bows to the conqueror
blesses the new union of might
then dulls former glories
yet in shadows lurk, truths
unflagging, unwavering, inexpungeable
staunch veracity, waiting for a laying
open of veins beneath rubble deemed
irrelevant, trivial, rubbish, not
for the living to engage
