Pronaos: How The Temple Should Face

Do snakes shed universes
when they shed their skin
and then grow new ones
in the space between?

Does a spinning top
remember where it has been
and try to right itself
when pushed from its beginning way?

How many innings are there
in a baseball game no one wins?

Are all containers the same?
Is every continent a moving picture
drifting toward the southern pole?

Is there any need for Eden?
Does the part need the whole?

Doesn’t every fable
begin in the middle
to wend its way day by day
little by little toward many ends?

Your wit and imagination is wild and wonderful thing--the art and text here are sensationally faboo as usual !!
