*************************

Mosul Museum

Assyrian bulls with human faces:

Recall, or imagine. In their places

Drilled stone is the most famous absence

From halls of lesser absence.


Imagine Warsaw a museum,

The city leveled to a mausoleum

By arms steadfast and methodical.

That is the museum at Mosul,


Architecture and aesthetic rubbled.

A vast image out of Yeats. Sight troubled.

And yet the millennia-old city

Advertises a new exhibit.
