        There was a small dark rock
        little more than a pebble really
        who wanted
        more than anything
        to be a pickle
        to have that green skin
        all shined up and covered with bumps
 
        this rock pined
        with the thought of it
        but knew
        if it could only
        find its way
        into someone’s mouth
 
        that it could be sucked smooth
        maybe to a soft ruby glow
        or at least
        to a hard
        dry yellow
 
        and that
        would be 
        something
