count up the marbles of our misadventuresMature

Count up the marbles of our misadventures - 
tell me one at a time the weight of each one,
describe the transparency and the shade, - 
is it oak brown or caramel brown?
Roll it between your fingers and articulate
the feel of the surface so we can map it;
keep track of any weather patterns and
coastlines, where the sadness meets our hearts.

The End
