Stones in Paris, Italy by Noa Opeyemi

“‘Stones in Paris, Italy,’ written during a WriteGirl Poetry Palooza, takes the perspective of a rock on the side of a SoCal road. Rocks really do rely on others for their fate — they can’t move on their own, so it takes the wind or a flood or some person to move them into what’s next, and all this rock has of its own are hopes and dreams.”
