It All Could End

It's telling how things are changed by the milestones
we throw out, meanings attached, like a stone

dropped ceremoniously into a pond for the surface waves
to witness. Then the days

that felt the ripple changed pace.
They're gathered each to their respective place

at the bottom. A told method for practicing chance,
when still they'd have fallen. And no forms of romance

required. Not comfort or claim, not even art 
is desired by the harsher movement of whatever teases the heart

from its hiding place.
