Paper Stone Circle
stone turns to paper in her eye
as she filters cycles of light
into circles of paper stones

her eye is a stone circle
a near-infinity of light
that sees the circle as finite

the near-permanence of stone
the almost endless circle
is light, impermanent as paper

stone and white butterflies
circle and circle her
she questions their sentience

stone ancestors
paper-light circles
she sees them say

she hears their paper voices
say, know your own time
be light, circle, stone
