Aaron James Satoshi Cole The Ocean's Bed

I walked upon the pavement
'til I observed a passing stone
roll 'gainst a gutter,
as if to be alone.

This stone had no specific colour
or hue that I could see
to make it 'specially distinguished
by its society.

Perhaps it was not as rigid--
a bit rounder than the rest.
Yet I could presume no reason
to regard it any less.

It was neither sharp nor jaded
but rather smooth on top.
So I quickly cupped my hand
and drew the fellow up.

He seemed to quake and quiver
as he looked beneath a tree;
I saw the others looking up
with utmost enmity.

Thus, I hid him in my pocket
and took him lands away
where others would not find him
or curse him where he lay.

I placed him by an inlet
where the ocean came to play.
She drifted out to greet him
and offered him to stay.

He agreed as did the others,
and rolled to the water's edge,
where he tucked himself beneath her sheet
and sank

quietly

to

bed.
