Deep ploughed grooves
reveal treasures between vines
broken pots, beads, loom weights,
amphora base inscribed with a name.
Burnt edges speak of conflagration,
terror, loss, pain.
Archeology of human fear.

Cochi was the term for pot sherds when we were Archeological Field-Walking in Sicily several years ago.
