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?
