Lay down these words

Before your mind like rocks.

          placed solid, by hands

In coice of place, set

Before the body of the mind

          in space and time:

Solidity of bark, leaf, or wall

          riprap of things:

Cobble of milky way,

          straying planets,

These poems, people,

          lost ponies with

Dragging saddles--

          and rocky sure-foot trails.

The worlds like an endless


Game of Go.

          ants and pebbles

In the thin loam, each rock a word

          a creek-washed stone

Granite: ingrained

          with torment of fire and weight

Crystal and sediment linked hot

          all change, in thoughts,

As well as things.
