Skipping rocks on a still pond
not knowing the depths or how long
as it breaks the cool surface
it sinks into a rink of uncertain
getting knocked down
wave after wave
that word always seems to be resurfacing
as its fumbling around
on the ground
the least you can do is turn around
and think
before you speak
a single word
