DKA Poetry Contest First Prize: "Statuary"

John Kuhn's winning poem is up at DKA for your reading pleasure.

Here's the first stanza:

Shrouded, wound about in mists as ancient
as Leviathan, hidden as his yawning lair
Atlantis in clouded absinthian waters,
they lie, awaiting splendor’s blade to lay them bare.

Actually, the first stanza is a quote from Job.

Decent vernacular and rhyme scheme imo, but pretty elliptical.

No, the quote from job is the epigram. :)
