Eternal Embrace

Archeologists in Italy have discovered a couple buried 5,000 to 6,000 years ago, hugging each other.

ROME (Reuters), Tuesday, February 6, 2007

“That’s the way I want to go

in her arms, teeth intact

Discovered in five thousand years

a beacon to the loveless masses of the futue

Our femurs and tibias co-mingled

a love only bones could know

We’ll be like black and white movies

an innocent portrayal of a time long gone

They knew how to do it back then, they’ll say

just imagine if they still had eyes”
