pleiades choreographic [excerpt]
The theme is forgiveness, the theme is justice (deferred, delayed, obtained). The theme is rejoicing alternating with suffering (watercourse, torrent) Harrowing the fields. Beauty (bound to a thing, entangled) Making compassion possible The lyre, lyric (our thirst--ζιφοσ). To frighten away (chase, reject). A thicket of reeds (δονακευς) Kindling a fire What moves through the human body Before and after the discovery of electricity.
