I've been dabbling in writing since I was a teenager, but I never took myself seriously at all. This is my first attempt. Wish me luck! http://ruwhiteknuckled.blogspot.com/






Calcium on dust
painted white bones
brittle strands of glucose
held together with a whisper
faint as a memory
fragile non-matter
almost not there
gone with a breath
icicles from the wood
hit the earth and shatter
no one notices
gone into water
part of the eco
no longer its own
part of the whole
no choice
