Temporal housing vacated

Contemplation

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.
