The Last Stone

image

inscribed upon
hard surfaces
adages to live by

small circles
to clutch with
worried hands

hard strength
to grip when
days are hard

yet one remains
awaiting its turn
a simple word

multiplication
you and i and
a billion more

precious stones
across the world
like grains of sand
