If this grain of sand
Were the world
How many fragments
Would bury me under
Matter of a different size
Evidence of my demise

If this sample of earth
Were the only remains of the life I have lived
Common elements found in abundant supply
Would assessment of physical properties
Fail to distinguish my fate
Round and polished
Through distances traveled
And water and wind
But am I

A succession of age to abrasion
Through ancient residual tide
A compression of everything under the sun
All I've known and experienced
Into a miniature record of time
This relation of size and significance
Threatens to undo my sanity
And to unveil my chance
To surrender
