Imagine creatures so dense
they can swim through solid rock;
treading granite,
they gaze on a world they can never touch;
you are air to them;
fingers pass through you,
roiling your insides and bringing up things
best kept from view;
a snapshot measures 4.5 on the Richter scale,
a misstep into sandstone
brings a deadly fall;
the skeleton sinks to the mantle
without a trace.
