PLAIN POEMS: JULY 6, 2001 (2)We don't know the ponderous
thoughts of stones. What do they dream
of as afternoon heats them?
Do they dream of arms and legs
or wings? Do they dream of love?
Do they remember glaciers -
the weight, the shove? Sitting with
stones, oh, lost among stones, aren't
you surprised at what you learn?
