…& the Me Bone’s Connected 2 the→

dancing_skeletons

My bones & skull

restricted me,

so filleted I, and tossed ‘em,

feeling thin, all guts and skin,

I relayed off to Boston…

In town of Bean,

I made the scene,

but didn’t make the Globe.

Since skeleton

~not gelatin~

is best for making bones…

The target next

–Connecticut—

to school enclosed in moss…

but didn’t pass,

pre-req for class,

no skull, nor bones to cross.

From Old Brick Row,

I had to go, and–

running short of money,

I hit the stage,

but made no wage,

without a bone of funny.

Returning ,then,

to skeleton–

and skull–

I stretched them bigger,

as back with bone

will keep you tone,

improving too, the figure.

Before the Wind

skeletons

(in closets)

or out

–bones just can’t tell–
 
 
how their lives might have been…

if cheekbones

hollowed before

harvest

or bloomed,

if sockets ran rivers

or shone,

if hips

danced or

trudged a lone,

if ribs held hearts

broken

or whole,

if blades

squared

or

bowed,

if heels

dug in

or achille’d

if arms held

or kept at length.

–bones just can’t tell–

the story

behind mortal weaks

of flesh…

tri-umph

to do it

(just do it)

try—

umph!!

Pour a little get up and go

(on it)

add a lil somethin’ somethin’

(to it)

put a little extra

oomph

(in it)

in everything you do.

Grab that blue ribbon—

that A—

that gold star standard….

to hell with

limbo

(ing)

set that bar.
