Archaeology was my chosen field,

Artefacts and pottery sherds, that sort of thing

Above all I strove to date that

Bronze Age hair those white thighs, her

Confusing layers of strata.

In muddy trenches our

Trowels clashed and one wet field trip

We excavated each other.

Epochs later I observed her digging in a charity shop

An old ruin now,

A bit like myself

Simon, interesting juxta positioning of events - enjoyed. I think many old ruins hereabouts may thank WOL for a sense of escapism during this prolonged period of self isolation and lockdown. 👍
