      "In the paradise lost
      of probability.

      Somewhere else.
      Somewhere else.
      How these little words ring."

          from "The Railroad Station"
          by Wislawa Szymborska

To the cold deep water
concentric circles expand
a stone cast to the depths.

Dripped from tall granite
a sound, soft and wet
flows in an ebbing echo

its density of strength
cold hardened rock
unyielding and unforgiven

a seeming brilliance
from a width of shores
the luck of choice, selected.

The silent liquid face
on a dark mirrored plane
and the forever -- before.
