Dulcet Tones Fails Geology

(Pocket Poetry)
by Kenneth Pobo

(U.S.A)

Well, it’s a rock. I know

I’ll lose points

on the Lab test, but

the rock wants

no biography written

of its slowly eroding life.

My life erodes too.

I prefer a bendy world,

nothing rock solid,

elastic as a goose

neck curving around

a leaning reed.
