Stones


In the end we're all
reduced to stones,
names and dates,
fields of grass
over resting bones,
just like at school,
finding a place
where we fit in.

Here inside,
some draw more attention
than they deserve,
though in time, 
most will come
to be ignored,
visitors convinced,
even as they begin
to look this way,
our stones have nothing
more to say.
