TEMPLE OF JANUS


by
Cardinal Cox


It is where time-travelers go
Whenever they’re in the era
Trans-temporal tesseracts
Parked in higher dimensions
Open doors in Rome for a thousand years
Statue a tachyon transmitter beacon
Chance to re-charge chrome coils
Reset the dark matter pendulum
Check inoculations are
Up to standard before you
Visit the slave market
Be briefed before a gladiator show
Local color, native pursuits
Calendar marked for barbarian
Invasions, revolts, coups, plagues, fire
Warnings not to let slip anything
That might be predictions for residents
Embassy, tourist office,
Police station, toll booth, outpost
