Brittle Bones

The slightest breath would crumble

the delicate skeleton.  Misgivings derail

each concocted composite of strange symbols

deemed of meaning.  The brittle bones break,

disintegrate, leaving a perplexed ponderer

looming over ashes and dust, unsupported

and writhing in desperate despondency.
