show me bone

©2023 michael raven

cardboard cutout
everyday shadow play
i wish to burn it down
scrims and shorn

cut the masquerade
and see if there is
real under all the façade,
or is it just steel?

bone, show me bone
hearts going thrum thrum
and sinew stretched
taut out of love

don't speak to me of things:
pour your heart
into a wineglass
spiced with thorn & tears
& share it with me
