City Poems: Athens (II)

Antiquity! Fitting? Use certain sounds in place of words and people shall…
the Determined young Nationals---
how many Years before (then after) Democracy.
Everyone knows the Figure who gets killed. He
never receives the cruel brunt of Revisionist history
sometimes others do. Oh well, it happens.

O! Invocation to temples, to painted walls and dead poets,
never to you. And I, sharing
coffee. Which I dislike very much.
everyone has their particular flaws. So be it.

maybe the Perfection that comes to us when we see Perfection
originates in Ancient Streets and pale-skinned people yes…
really! They are darker now, tho'
envisioning the Turkish influence on the streets of some Greek City.
