Not Important

_______________________________________

i have frozen with soldiers
done drugs with royalty
dined with diplomats
faced off the enemy
reasoned with sophists
played with musicians
spoken with poets
tangled with demons

i held hands with the dying
linked arms with the prisoners
fought fiercely with lovers
shared moments with strangers
laughed loudly with children
and wept silent with family_

forgot names not faces
learned all their stories
i never met anyone who was not important _
