Canto 26.45. Ulysses, Diomede & the Trojan Horse # 13. [Yesterday, at the Armory Show—the art fair in New York City, I photographed this giant rocking horse who told me that he had always aspired to be the Trojan Horse.]
"And there inside their flame they grieve the ruse
By which the horse became the gate through which
The Roman’s noble seed has issued forth.
[Canto 26, lines 58-60, translated by James Finn Cotter.]
