Persephone Vandegrift: Silbury Hill

Silbury Hill

I think Gaia was a virgin
when the men came
took their dreams out
and buried them deep inside her

Then they wandered the fields bewildered
carved circles on rocks
and built stone chambers
trying to decipher

What is this great mound?
Surely it holds such plunder?

Oh you silly men
with your measuring strings
sandals tattered and torn

Everyone knows
this mound
is just a belly full of gods
waiting to be born
