"Stone" by Geoffrey Philp



All you need is one smooth stone
To fling your rage, buss Babylon head:
Watch downpressor stagger, drunk from the blood
Of sufferahs, who have not sworn
Their lives to the beast, waiting to be fed.

All you need is one smooth stone,
Clean as a skull or a shinbone
Raked from the Atlantic sea bed
An altar for ghosts, who will not be comforted.
All you need is one smooth stone.
