Poems of Christopher Logue

Preamble

Two limestone plates support the Aegean world.
The greater Anatolian still lies flat,
But half an eon past, through silent eyes:

Above His brother, Lord Poseidon’s, sea:
‘And that, I shall call Greece. And those,
Her Archipelago,’ said He. Then turned away

[Hata Bildir]
