Commentary po.em: bones of our ancestors

Commentary po.etry.. Ever hear of it? Here is an example

Lorraine's frilly freudian slip

Sometimes comments on posts lead to more. Such as the po.ems developed by Mark and I. This is part in a series. See also: Words Become Necessary, Sometimes Before and Midnight Mirror.

Our latest po.em. My words are in italics.

bones of our ancestors

left to bleach in the twilight sun

cracked lips sing upon funeral pyres

quilted into the fabric of being

the ancient chants of the dead

coveted in the dust of dreams
