there is artifice in these bones
look, how when disrobed
of flesh and fat and given a proper
bath, look how they gleam whitely
such purity, such strength
there are tooth marks
on many a tibia, on many an ulna
and ancient boys slew their brothers
with their fathers’ femurs

Beautiful and dark. Do the bite marks on the bones refer to cannibalism?
That’s what I was thinking. I’ve always had a weird obsession with cannibalism. Obsession, not participation, mind you.
Hmm. I wonder…

I love bones, and these are beauties 🙂 You were cut adrift, but I have reeled you back in again.
And all I had to do was bait the hook with some flesh and blood.
You bring out the morbid in me.
That’s a mind-blower–especially that last line.
Thanks. Hope it wasn’t too disturbing.
