Body is Bone-Cage
When I am released from this bone-cage:
When neurons collapse
Skin, dust, dissipation of atoms of “me”.
When my ribs are no longer trapped across my chest, holding everything in
like the spines of sailing ships.
Guts spill out, liver & bile & blood
Intestines let loose my last meal (quinoa salad & beans).
When my brain ceases rattling in its cage
