Rabbit bones and dirty feet

Since you ask

I still sit in corners
With my typewriter on my lap and
Dirt streaking my feet and
I still hit the keys
Hard

They’re made from bones
That I drew from the earth
And of teeth
That I pulled from my mouth

And even after
All this bloodshed
My skeleton
Still holds me
Upright

I am older than my last story
I am madder than the moon
And I am still
Singing

It’s only a quiet song
Only a quiet heart
But I cup it in my palm
To keep it warm

And I think
You would still
Recognise me

Since you ask

Rabbit bones and dirty feet

Artist's Description

It’s that time of year again, when the cycle turns.

Some things remain constant.

There’s comfort in that, I think.
