Changing images

Zeus has forgiven Sisyphus

For divulging his secret,

For being deceitful,

For killing travellers,

And for many more sins,

His spirit now free;

Today’s Polygnotus is busy giving

The king a rest and the forever falling rock

A stable look.


Thus the world has become light…


The Thinker of Rodin

Is giving a flying kiss to the world

Not pensive any more;

Out of Louvre

La Jaconde of Vinci

Is laughing ha ha ha

Beyond apprehension and doubt

Her crowns shining bright;

And O the tired Hercules

Shouldering responsibility for so long

Has brought the world to his heart

His head resting on it

Hugging huge for good.
