There Was A War

There was a war
That went on here today
In this room
In this book
On these scrawled
And ink-stained pages

I am not sure

In scribbles and
Scratches and arrows
And notes in margins

It is a beautiful mess
Pen and ink
Against the virgin white page
Tediously plotting out
A work of art…
