In My Bones

 

When was the last time I dug a grave

told a joke

baked cookies, frosted a cake, got lost on an adventure?

 

It may have been at the end of last Summer

when the leaves began to fall

and the fires roared up North and the smoke turned the Sun blood red.

 

When was the last time I dressed a corpse

waited for a Doctor to sign a death certificate

had a laugh, braided my hair waited watched a meteor shower with my cat?

 

It may have been at the end of a long ago Summer

when the Sun died for a while

and I heard the dusty ground cry in a relief.

 

When was the last time

I saw the fog creep into the cemetery

down the road from where I live?

I think it will be soon.

I know it must be soon.

I can feel it in my bones.
