Ashes to ashes

Carefully Stacked Bones

Worn, weary, and full of wonder.

These carefully stacked bones carry
Weight of decades: secrets, sadness, sweet
Singing soulful — soul, full. A lullaby.

These bones don’t care if your name is Stick
Or Stone, Logos or Doctor Death
These bones sing the birth of blood
