A stone means one thing in isolation
and another grouped A place can follow
you home in its stones by sneaking into
your pocket or palm or shoe Two or more
stones grouped together on the ground
and a person has tried to leave a little
of themselves behind Later that human
can think of that assemblage of stones
under the pines that stare out into the water
or in a row on the ledge of a headstone
The self can be scattered and not diminished
