Every Wish will be Granite

Take the sun for instance -- a circle with rays.  This is not the sun.  Instead, double it. 
Smash it.  Smear it.
Then you have the sun, wincing in effigy. 
Don't make it yellow.  Use bacon grease.  I swear.  Kick it with your slipper sox.  Bore through it with Lawn Darts.  Split it with string, pushing and pulling like a saw.  A saw horse, a sea horse or worse. 
Gag it up from the Charley horse where you have been hiding it.  This is no time to hide in the washroom with a jacket.  No time for pencils, small offences, or rocks.  Engrave your name near the handprint in the cave.  
Fish are schooling in the deep you would avoid.  Go there. 
You will shine.
