Footnotes of Memory

What magic words are there
To arrest the inexorable? 
A golem does what it does,
Unhaunted by reason or guilt,
Stopping only when it is
Lifted from the road
And lowered into the
Footnotes of memory.


I’ve retired after a career teaching law. I divide my time now between Athens, Georgia, in the States and the south coast of Ireland.
