Out at the Dig

Last night we drove out
so I could see the dig—
I had never been inside the gate—
The sun was melting behind
Il Vulture, and shepherds
were bringing a huge flock
of goats up the road …
Stepping over crypts,
The apse, room after room -
Felt surreal, as if the past
Crouched just there ---
Behind a veil.
