Skeleton

SKELETON

There was a sweeping tree

In my best friend’s back yard.

They cut it down; it was rotting.

I stood on the stump tonight,

Surveying the piecemeal limbs

Spread across the lawn

Like a museum dinosaur skeleton.

Our rope swing, slack

Snaked across the grass

Like entrails, wet with dew.
