Visiting Toledo

By | 1 December 2009

to the absurdity.


engine revving


and the tour bus

to wars still fought

to now

the link

a bulwark

and the sturdy bridge

to rushing torrents

from massive ramparts

cast down

tortured bodies

the vicious inquisition


on past intolerance


Napoleon's plunder

done by armies

regret damage

marvel at mosaics

and terrestrial beings

carved celestial

and El Grecos

glimpse Goyas

on cathedral walls


centuries of life

of narrow lanes

and a maze

the Christian kings

the Moors

of past invaders

to ghosts

of Spain

to the sacred heart

concealed by rock

up sheer cliffs

taking tourists

fortress walls


An escalator
