Importance (a Musing)

Standard

corinthian columns vs
ionian vs
dorian and
you said the historians
poured over the stories like they were
pieces of
botticelli fragments,

but they stopped in their tracks
when you said that
maybe your stopping to get
coffee that morning
or the lovers who
stopped to whisper by the streetcorner
was just as important

as plato at his desk in the
early evenings, looking out of his
open window, just thinking,
or the blood stained battlefields of
napoleon,
glinting in the
fading orange sunlight
