and then...bones

Why do men keep their hair short? Are they showing off the top of their spine? Men have it thicker there. Like a knob. 

Bones have joints. A joint is a drug or a biological hinge. Boys make bigger joints; they stick out and scabs happen. Mine doesn't like his bones. He has trouble with them all, and his teeth, every one. He is fearful of every kind of bone. Bone takes his dreams. 

Have you dreamt of all your teeth falling out? That's how the bones take his dreams and I won't say what it means.


I walk with pictures of the bones and then I sit down and look at them and then I write. I carry the images with me. I have other images too. I write about the body of the world, so it's bones I'm looking at now. Writing is fun when you carry the images with you.
