Rare Earth

Go outside
And look for the bright red dot
Momentarily swung close
Before it spins away again
The armadillo I saw today did not know how close to impossible and controversial it was
On the cool grass
Manicured yard
Spring sun

Do the math
Of precise chemical composition
And impossible rocks
Flung out
By a boy skipping them
Across water

We all have a white whale
An impossible box

Open it
Open it

Christmas.
