really, it’s just confusing.
to a week of Grecian sunsets,
a lap around the Acropolis,
the panic of searching for public toilets
and a hotel room for two,
in a really big bed,
between grief for history lost
and praise for history preserved.
in the span of three weeks,
am i to feel small, sad, or human?
pluck a daffodil ten feet from the remaining corner
of Apollo’s Temple. fossilize petals between pages
of my travel journal.
to which the gods will attend
to a hotel room for two.
