bag of bones

31 Jan

my life is on layaway

each month i have to scramble

up

another payment

for this bag of bones

chipped, cracked, and old

wearing holes in the burlap

but my life needs this crumbling

infrastructure

and i have no army of volunteers

to build me a new body

and a bright new bag of bones
