carvings: C. Tilley, Material Culture and Text.
London, 1991. "(Nämforsen), by the way, is now completely
destroyed by the construction of an enormous power plant, the river
most of the year is dry and resembles a building site, only a few
of the carvings are painted in, some inaccurately, the rest scarcely
visible. In case you are interested, it is scarcely worth visiting
today and an immense disappointment." Ibid.
Butler felt that Homer's Odyssey was written centuries after
the Iliad in Sicily, as we find in it a "large a number
of local details, taken so exclusively and so faithfully from a single
Sicilian town as to warrant the belief that the writer must have
lived and written there..." S. Butler, The Authoress
of the Odyssey. Chicago, Ill., 1967.p.1.

Sucking their paws in the long winter
Tearing the high-strung caches down
Whining, crying, jacking off
(Odysseus was a bear)
