Inca Stones

The stones stand stone on Incan stone,

No mortar joints but perfect union

Of bronze-crafted surfaces:

Chisel and bevel,

Face to face,

Trapezoid in perfect geometry they lean,

Earthquake-proof, organic bonds of

Secret joints, locking spurs and

Papertight union.


I hear the guide but see you dance


Amongst the ancient stones.

For so our hearts are bonded,

Face to face,

In interlocking union.

Ten thousand miles are

Paperthin between us.


Cusco October 2007
