a bourbon afternoon
skipping stones and tomes

I am a stone
a flat stone
a smooth stone
carved by the waves

Skip me along the water
count the skips.
Over four is good

Fool the fish who try to
catch me,
smack’em on the fishlip
on the fourth bounce
fool the fish,

fish the fool
out of water
out of sun
raisins in the moon
with cheese on the side

Epilogue - A poet’s tale:
I’ll pretend to write
you pretend to like

A fanciful tale that grows more delightful with each read, but I dont play pretend anymore. :)

hahaha. I don't know if i should have laughed or not...but the ending was humorous to often how i feel about my own writing. This was good stuff...and i like the idea of being a flat stone skipping across the water...what a ride that would be!
