among chalky calcium bones
and stale skeleton exhalations
chilled by death’s silent keening
he searches for a deeper meaning
just the basic element survives
no skin, no muscle, tongue or eyes
brittle skeleton, skull and teeth
and no vitals underneath
form and structure linger on
long after life’s poetry is gone
Kim M. Russell, 2017
