As You Stare Into The Vacuum Of His Eyes


some stones
having a chat
'Shhhh....here's a human! '

the human stares
the stones remain
sthum

the human reaches for
one of them...then:
skims it across the lake

'Whoa....wheee...hee hee! '
screams the stone
but no one hears

the human has been &
gone
the stones stunned into silence

'I wish he'd chosen me! '
the fat stone says
'I always wanted to travel! '

bottom of the lake
a stone chats to fishes
misses the stones he knew
