  1. I wrote this poem last night. It is unlikely that I will see you again and so, this may be a parting gift and a soft “good-bye.”

    Whose Drum is This

    Whose bones are these?

    Deep and hurting

    Under layers

    Under skin stretched across

    The drum of my face

    My face in the moonlight

    My face whimpering as a soft drum …

    Whose bones are these?

    Where is the girl?

    Where is the long-distance runner –

    Whose bones slipped out the window and carried her

    To meet the early ocean

    In secret – before dawn …

    Before her Mother could tell her not to go;

    That a girl should not run

    That a girl must stay home at night –

    That a girl should sleep …

    Despite the nightmare of an unsafe bed.

    Where is the angry twenty year-old?

    Where is the rebel who marched in the street?

    Her face was a drum

    That could be heard across the city.

    Whose bones are these and whose drum is this?

    These bones have fallen before you –

    These strange bones that sound like autumn leaves

    Beneath a man’s boot.

    Sweet woman,

    Reach in with me

    And awaken

    These bones that sit

    When they should rise

    Like a spear to the sky.
