Self Adorned

I was once a rock embedded in stone.
Now, I wear rocks on my fingers
with the help of metal
pounded thin
in the hollow shape of a ring.

This one isn't heavy, that I notice.
It matches the solidity of my bones
the rock does. The metal 
bends and wraps around my finger
now that I've embedded 
a rock within its coil,
polished as a precious stone.
