pebbles

there was that night
I saw myself in you

you were finding pebbles
in a stream by cloudy moonlight

see this one, you said
it was once a mountain

it is greater now than it was

you touched your hand to your heart
and then to my face

you look down on yourself
as if from a mountain, you said

so I lay down in the stream

while you laughed
and tossed pebbles at me
