Amphitheatre at Tarragona

One might say there are atmospheric conditions

in the minds of men that reach a sort of dewpoint

at which the gods condense on the walls

and floors, as of this amphitheatre;

we plaudits of fennel amok

where was staged

plays… or gladiatorial combat.

It’s all the same to us Foeniculum vulgare.

Ask Capparis spinosa. We don’t claim to speak

for every ancient herb.
