small stones

I know well enough
to leave the boulders alone:
life, health, breath,
But surely the pebbles
(just a few)
I can keep in my grubby fist?
Breakfast dishes,
and the ingredients
for a simple pasta dinner.
These tiny tasks
need not be grace,
I'm prone to think --
until I fall
like Goliath.
