Bones Dig this Dream

she knew it
couldn't explain it
followed her great 
yearning for bones
cut her teeth
on bones
bones dig grave
thirteenth hour yips
dead leaves at her feet

marrow root she hisses
more than skin
she digs deeper
kneads and massages
until she feels bone
be what you mean
be bone
be marrow
O Grave Undertaker
root of this dream
