Mimic of a Beat
Introduction Quote“A decimated city
Dying. And deadly the dead.
All lying uncried for. But crying
Matrons and mothers graying
At every altar praying.
Till the Chiming sorrow of digres
Is splintered by the shouts of the paean:
Rescue! O golden daughter
Of Zeus’s with your smile.”
~The Oedipus Plays of Sophocles
