When I was about twenty I went by myself
up into the towerthe holy place
and never questioned it, but felt
I could never be of it.

You could feel it in the air
this power

like being shown another planet
and not sure I’d ever come back
from this world of gods who were men.

In these lonely steps I took
there was no one to help me.

You are not allowed here.

The look of the stone the sound
of the stone it’s all

go away.
