…and now the players

There on the stele, like a Vesuvian shadow
the paparazzi flash, in geologic time, gray slate
the sky tempered gaze of Urania heavenward
Galileo entranced by her song, capering
the demoness trapping him in sun centered rings
the crystal enclosure of a metabolic theory,
cathartic, industrious, a hymn to education
and an almighty revel personifying doubt.

The scene is set, and now the players.
