"The First Stone"
by Roger Morris

Round houses made of glass.
May you throw the first stone.
I live in my deferred world
with red cowboy boots on,
always wanting
to climb off this thing
if it would just stop its turning
round and round and round.
Those swings and dings
and dings and things
and things that go round
never stopping to let the wisdom in.
