Placing the Words

Words to him were stones

a few unusual, placed

for effect where needed, but

mostly ordinary, some

more polished than

others, some eroded, others

exploded, melted, cooled, each

picked up for its

shape, color, heft, the

feel of it in his palm before

setting it into the

appropriate stratum, its

lithic syntax, the place

where it falls from

the tongue.
