SMOOTH STONE

There are many ways to kill a giant.
Ill bring a stone.
You can take it out of the water,
polished,
struggling for nothing,
the pulse of it weighing
strong and smooth and steady
in your hand
for a lifetime
every glittering piece of sun inside it
gathering such intensity and force
before sailing,
completely empty,
completely void of any lingering doubt or hesitation,
clean into the heart of the deep blue myth.
