Some Idea of Stone

Laughter has become small and brittle 

like tiny, shiny pebbles 
escaped from coarser gravel 
through a sieve, 
fragmenting monotony, 
stranding larger particles behind. 
Not adhering to each other 
or to anything, 
but some idea of stone, 
they tantalize 
in their mockery of purpose,
looking only pretty. 
You cannot build a wall of them, 
nor a solid path or patio. 
They are good only for decoration 
and there are simply too many of them 
to ignore.
