Sysiphus

Sysiphus prose poem

Photo by ChuckSchultz

Since Sysiphus had been driven out of Hell, as a punishment for his rebellion, and since it was written on its entrances that he is a persona non grata – since that old time, Sysiphus is still carrying up his rock to the top of the hill in order to let it fall down, to be carried and falling, once and again, forever.
But, just yesterday, he told me that he’s moved out to a hill without a top.
