The Bullfrog (Big Bureau Again)

Socrates: But if he did not acquire the knowledge in this life, then he must have had and learned it at some other time? 
Meno: Clearly he must. 
Socrates: Which must have been the time when he was not a man? 
                                                                                (Plato tr. Jowett)

Through the night on the creek bank
bellows fan desire,

round and hollow followed by a snapping whip:


I listened.

I am still listening.

What do the frogs remember of me?

[E. A. Costa 26 September 2013]
