Marble quarry edge
vast space dug, emptied
of crystalized limestone
chunks cut, carried off
as the mind is sliced
ideas, mottled blotches
of variegated views
polished, re-used, steps
floor tile, slabs support
movement of generations
scholars debate paths
conclusions frame, fire’s
place, rare color shades
determine higher price.
