LASCAUX, Robert Beveridge

Lascaux

dog. hole. Why
are dogs so curious?
Head poked
in, clamber down.

Daylight washed
through dangle
of weeds and thorny 
growth

reveals color,
line. Buffalo,
perhaps, chased
by man. spear.
blood.

Someone
has been here
before.
Who? How
long ago?

And where's
that damn dog?
