Trifecta: Week 40: Dinosaur


These old bones
trapped in the stone memory
of its youth
is a prime example -

the quick brown fox
of the mind
not quite so eager
to jump or mend
its broken fences

except perhaps when I think back on you

long necks nuzzling
in the twilight,
our slow, distal lumbering
into solitude
and all the while
Hold me one more time
I need that stinging newborn wetness
straight from the shell when I'm with you
to make this old dinosaur whole
still singing
in the landscape 
of my brain
