four stones are enough

too care — never enough
blare, flare — weep
too sung to wear
cold drum — never
too stare — scare
too many eyes too deep

one never-enough river is ever
enough sketches, enough skin and bones, enough
stones. four stones are enough

because one is (love [a]live) listen
one two is (wet) walk
one two three is (drown[ing]) dance
and one two three four is (eternal) everybody sing
