Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 30th of September.

I am stone
Break me up
Splinter the pieces
Use a heavy hammer
Pulverise
The shale into powder
Easy blows the wind
Disperse the dust
Far and wide
Let it fall
Whenever it is
Well founded
Let it be sieved
Into timeless sand
Finely ground
It will return
Unto the bedrock.
I am grist
Put me through the mill
Knead me
Into submission
Let me fly
I am all but dry
A husk
Lacking in substance
Nothing more
Than chaff
Skin
With no bone
Not misunderstood
But meaningless
With little attraction
To the living
Who all have
Sophisticated palettes.
Cover me
Leave no stone
Unturned
Forget where I lie
It is of little consequence
When I die
Use a broom
And sweep
The faded memory
Clean away.
