Poem: cycle


Socrates taught the youngodd
hungers

taught the midnight
secrecy of the Idea

Socrates taught Crito
laws were

hemlock

Socrates taught Glaucon
not to drink blood in the

stung his interlocutors
words walk

and Plato
outlawed

poet of Er who
saw the dead

lurking for fury
trade shape with swans

waiting
a new

waiting
for the young
