'We have invented nothing new.' Picasso

Pablo's Lament

this is not Lascaux
no shaman ritual revealed
no Painted Gallery
no narrow passage leading
to The Great Hall of the Bulls

there is no myth as yet

just our initials carved into a towering oak

an artifact:

nothing new

Picasso was right

"We have invented nothing new."
Picasso's quote after seeing the 17,000 year old cave paintings of Lascaux.
