Khufu’s Horizon

Khufu’s Horizon

a true pyramid

but is it a tomb?

giant triangle times four

with the square

at the bottom for its root

one of seven wonders

too great

the point at the top

was golden rod and plate

no bones have been found

in there to date

so was Giza Cheops mausoleum?

or maybe a power station for state?

like Nikola Tesla might create

geometry, trigonometry

for physics to generate

electricity in antiquity

Hermetic simplicity

domineering engineering is

lost technology

in archeology


no bones about it

no bones in it—

wireless transmission

to Khufu’s horizon

from Khufu’s Horizon?

just an open minded
