Pivot point

After Matthew 2:1-15

History pivoted
in their small town
in the hills, down
the road from one
capital and even
farther from another.
History pivoted here,
though, positioned
between the king
of death and the city
of refuge, with travelers
providing the catalyst
for the pivot to turn,
told to be good reporters
and tell the story, instead
becoming protectors,
moving another way,
refusing to tell the story
so that the story 
might not end but
be told.
