Life of a Rock

Saint Paul, 6 November 2011

There's nothing supernatural
about the life of a rock
except perhaps how it got here
in the first place

While here its size and shape
is determined by well understood
physical processes

We'll never know how it got here
only that it was chipped and weathered
from something larger
