Cathedral, calendar, map
these monoliths hide their secrets -
Chinese whispers in history.
Sculpted rock, daily proclaiming a quest:
a desire to move from unknowing,
a search outside for something within.
The genetic drive to celebrate
pushed, pulled, sweated and cried
these giants into place.
like eroded letters on a gravestone,
time has stolen their meaning.
Now we search for their search,
new savages, dissecting and analysing
not for our celebration
but for theirs.
