You cannot go across the road to the fence
Without treading on the universe.

- Boris Pasternak, "The Steppe"

A FEW ODD MILLENIA

A few odd millennia
.... scattered like loose change
........ on the highway of Time,

stamped with images of
....pharoahs, caesars,
........kings and presidents,

have lost their glitter
....in the inflation of eternity.
........Too many waylaid millions

cavort in excitation along side
....the road to becoming human
........(closed due to earthquake damage).

Again an era is punctual
....two thousand or so years
........after something or other,

synchronized ingeniously
....with precise calculations
........almost exactly incorrect

of some birth some time ago
....back then as the crow flies
........give or take a decade or two.

Pennies and dimes,
....centuries and millennia,
........scattered on the highway of Time -

with this treasure of Timelessness,
....is it even worth one’s while
........to stoop and pick them up?
