In silence he walked the avenue of tombs
until meadows of asphodels, white field view
as the sun set, yellow slope pink sea
of blooms in darkening green, scene
from a childhood dream, come back, déja vu
life had brought him there, inside his head
a place he had not sought, though turn
of circumstance or chance had forwarded a site
past event now folded, creased and sealed in night.
