spiral dance

spiral dance


thousands of years ago

we marked our flesh

men hunted

women stripped the carcass

blood thirst satisfied

the long dead frolicked


civility peaked about

we marked the earth

men ploughed

women planted magic

hunger satisfied

the long dead waltzed


came need to know

we marked the page

men taught

women watched and waited

knowledge satisfied

the long dead whirled


church illuminated

we marked the soul

men preached

women heard and worried

piety satisfied

the long dead reeled


millennia vanished

we mark each other

men kill women

and children follow

nothing satisfies

the long dead frenzy
