An image of this place, this time
In a way that invites neither quite awe
False assumptions rooted permanently
In a history mythologized for less than art's sake
(Is there any virtue
In knowing the intricacies of folly
This, reality unquestioned
On the basis
Of our having found some understanding
Of the fragments thereof.
The race goes not to the swift
Nor to the slow.
What victory is to be found
In any of this?
(Where is victory to be found at all
An image—weeping synthetic tears
Empty hands grasping
For that which
Has, and always will, elude us.
