By George Stratton

My stone heart is not balanced
into two equal sides.

One side is as big as ever
and the other is worn down
by the water of life
and rubbing,
scrubbing against other hearts
of stone.

Now that my heart is safe
in my hand...
the full unworn side
may never come to know
the rub and scrub
of water's tumble.

But still it serves to remind me
of how much
I have left
to give.
