for Miz Quickly: 12 June


 

A Mule Bone

I walked my bones
between Angels.
Toward a hairline horizon
of molten sounds of wind.

On a quiver of arrows
and splintered thoughts.

On sand almost sea.
Where wings beat backwards
and the sun shines unspent,
underground and under wood.

I walked with a handful of miracles,
a testament to a scavenger’s loop.

But not one stone to suck for water.
A mule bone is all I have. That beast
died of thirst and dropped like
straw for the fire. A fallen fruit.

Happened somewhere between
over there and nowhere.

  1. I can’t believe you wrote this so quickly. Brava!

    1. I picked out the title earlier in the day, and then I mentally worked on it while doing other stuff. Then I saw qbit’s list, and it all fell together. So it wasn’t really all that fast.

  2. We used two of the same titles! Great minds thinking alike.
    But I also added an extra prompt…

    I like what you did. I remember visiting Arizona so very arid and dry… I like medium weather not too hot and not to cold. 🙂
