....... a poem by Doug Holder

Am I a Man of Bone or Flesh?


I am more


than  stick


or bone


an empty


coat rack


for no one's


home.


 


Can you still


feel my supple flesh,


like a fruit's


skin blushing


with  ripeness?


 


And yes


I know


where I


stand


and the bone


lays periously close


to the flesh


of my hand--


 


Still I am more


than brittle bone,


the cold


unfeeling face


of glacial stone.
