“Bones” by Japhy Mitchell

The winds switch faster than
The clouds can circle

Under avalanches of ink

Saviours and Saints all
Buried beneath

Invisible tombstones
Prophets gone,
mixed
with dionysian delusions

Bound and bold 
Eating them for life
Stuffing the fluffy
And meaty words
Deep into my belly
Hoping it sits well.

Does plot thicken the bones?
