The shape of the vessel is wrong.
Somebody wanted to use it
For something or for something else
Entirely. Where's the masonry
To join the timbers of these words?
Stone. Who has any use for stone
Who's not a dead geologist?

The world goes on as worlds will do,
At least if they're worlds of their own.
Oh, I'm sorry, I just got tired,
Suddenly--really, really tired
All of a sudden. I'm tired.
Rhyme? Conceit? Kennings? For Christ's sake
(Or whomever's).The poem is done
