Two thousand years to cut through this mound
in the way. But a 30-minute cruise
beneath the sheer rock walls depends upon
a booking. Poor planning stopped progress on
the canal before. Nero, to the relief
of 6,000 extras, pulled the plug months
into the first excavation. Any
entrails would have shown the huge drain on
the state would not end in his lifetime.
That a living god would never stand in
one sea, like Jose and I, and look down
the blue telescope of the canal at
another. Then drift along a warm gravel
road, collapsing the four miles by foot.
