Temporal housing vacated


on July 20, 2003. ©-MFB III- All rights reserved


The skull grins at me

its vacant eyes

hold secrets I

have yet to experience.


Its former owner vacated

the premises long before

unwillingly evicted I'm sure....


Leaving only this remnant

of what was but is no more.


I lift the hinged top

exposing the empty cavity

and wonder at the thoughts

that once inhabited

this calcium temple.


What dreams stretched

and then drove

themselves relentlessly

against this wall of bone

longing to break free

through the fissures that

tempted their escape?


What elelctrical impulses

motivated the body

that hung underneath

this fossiled head ?


Where is its

former inhabitant now?

and what's it like

beyond the shell?


But the skull just grins

it knows the answers

but demands I wait

until I too am

initiated into

the brotherhood

of the dead.
