Pass the standing stone please dear


Certain words are pillars; rock,

stone, granite, bread, tea.  Lamingtons


even the filled ones, cannot coconut

the feelings jelly crystals and sponge-

cake are known to leave behind.


Bloody crumbs. Heft some boulders

on the cake stand, now throw the runes


in. Limestone, sandstone, scoria,

a teapot full of scree, say cheers

under the avalanche of morning tea.
