The Skin And Bones

The Skin And Bones


The skin and bones not keeping up

And not in sync:

Skin droops, bones thin,

Pushing, sinking

Both and all at different speeds,

The whole a tireless process.

Never ceasing to be shocked,

Dumbfounded and amazed;

Fazed when one should to be unfazed,

Indifferent. Not in tandem, random bones

Lose calcium and who can say ho hum to that?

If I sit long, too focused – hocus pocus,

Some unhappy joint becomes like super glue –

Joined like, like I-don’t-know-what!

A confrontation I can’t win

Since skin and bones continue
