bones like flutes (20160610)

we are all
musical instruments
flutes made of bone
femur and tibia
radius and ulna
so many ribs
bleached and hollowed
drilled with precision
so that the wind
passes over us
and plays us
a dry harmony

we wait for rain
to reflesh us
and take up
our own voices
once again
