By Mike O’Connell

there be a huge difference
between little skirmishes
and greater wars
not just the accumulated
weight of lead thrown
not only tonnage of explosives
in their many incarnations
blooming
so beautiful
here and there
like surprises in a garden
not only measured by
damage assessment
or by the amount of crimson
fluids dispensed
or fires fueled
but by percentages of
evolution
erased
