Exile of Ovid

Poem

Ovid banished from Rome, J.M.W.Turner

summon Gods

to inscribe sea change of

faceless beginning,

her sacred creation

spilling over numberless

epics

to reach one iron age

and hands of forged kings

who banish a poem

by the one who wrote seasons.

.

here you will remain in exile

as long as you have an Emperor
