stones

you threw stones into the lake,

gurgling delightedly at ripples,

naively thinking it unchanged.

 

yet I carry their round weight still.

  1. then cast them off again

    using wrack and tears for mortar.

    if the sound of our past laughter,

    echoes like a word divine,

    cast the first stone away

    and build a shrine.

    (I couldn’t help it sorry!)
