The Comfort of Stone

There is great comfort in stone:

in the immovable flow of grain

in the grey certainty of landscape

solid as a history engraved yet fluid

in a play of light. Histories, after all,

are written to order by today’s race-leader.

Such foundations float on time

to bring stark granite certainty

with all the flaws of immobility.

Such is the comfort of bleak stone.
