Talking nothing to this stone
the second poem in Lady G and Me is set here, as a conversation between one of the voices from the first sequence and this stone.
The original idea was for the stone to speculate on what would happen if the moron with the spray can were to meet either Bolingbroke or Mowbray. What price his strutting "Attitude" if the consequences were a short drop from a hastily improvised gallows.
I'm glad I changed my mind. But the question raises itself everytime I see the scrawl.
