Diamonds are forever

Caught in the dream of the grain,

Striving to reach shape

And freeze into sheer awesomeness.

Underneath all phrased hallucination,

The grain deserves its length,

Much as the shattered pebbles

Of the glass in your hand

About to break into unexpected smoothness.

The light gasps for antsy air

And I am caught between

The rim of the pebbles

That grace your lips

And the trouble of the grain

That leaves me in awe.
