All About Stones

Put your mind at ease,
I won't forget the size
or heaviness of that
four-sided stone or how
it tried to raise itself
in constant terror, from
the level of its pain.

All pebbles are not created
equally. Some weigh less
than eggs, others fit in the palm
of a hand and then there's
mountains where climbers freeze
to ice just because they can.

You can cripple a man with a rock
or write "I love you" on its skin.
If its flat enough, you can skip it
over a body of water or simply
put it in your pocket.
