I am poured out like water,

And all my bones are out of joint;

My heart is like wax,

It is melted within my breast

 

Psalm 22

Bonehead Series

Accidental

 

Inside my head

A plate has

Smashed

Crashed

Dropped

To the floor

Down

To my core

In pieces.

Wreck

 

Around the heart

This fractured cage

(Distorted in fall)

Drags

Flesh aching

Unawake

Senses

Sinewed

Torn

Worn

(falling apart)

With time.

Heart Song

 

Falling

Falling

I call

To the wild.

Dis/orientation

 

Still

Here –

Direction

True north –

Possibilities

Like spokes

Spike

From this path

Of least

Resistance.

Bonehead

 

Buried

Deep

In my bones

Numbered

Rememberings

Encode

The palimpsest

Of flesh.
