the stadion at nemea

~ PYX ~
Cracked himantes,
The sting of sweat,
Their only tears,
Familiar pain,
A victor stands…
His rage was felled.

A brief video I took entering the stadion at Nemea. I’ve included the ‘poem’ I scratched on my palms while there. 4 syllables per line; Earth, Air, Fire, Water.. in that order. The pyx (I imagined) was elemental.

I visited the sites of ancient Nemea during the late summer/early fall of 2017.
