DPF / Schnackenberg

For Day 20, from The Throne of Labdacus.

from The God Tunes the Strings: One / by Gjertrud Schnackenberg, b. 1953

Like pieces broken from the moon
Above the citadel of Thebes —

A story scourging the mud surface like a plague,
A Mycenaean folktale told

In a whispering poetry
