Wondering all the time who's on the other end

My poem "bn ʾdnbʿl bn ʾdrbʿl" is now online at Mythic Delirium. It's a Carthaginian ghost poem; I got it from a stele. Further notes can be found with the poem. Belligerent Cato, hungry Time. I don't write about Carthage as often as I would like.

It was the lines before that that caught my attention:
"Whose bones cracked like lime
in the heat of your vow"
