READING LUCRETIUS

Or reading Plautus. And how parents build
their children like houses. But then they must
go away. Experience comes to the child in the
form of a rainstorm that rips off the roof.
The house is filled with water and nothing
grows or lives for the teenager of ancient
Rome. There is nothing for ancient Roman
parents to do about the house they built
and left. They were supposed to build and
leave and they did. Build and leave.
