Fibia, Tibia

Once last night while mom flailed, while leaning to the left, she somehow tangled her right leg below the left, locking the right knee under the other. An impossible posture. A painful locking of limbs.

Fibia, tibia,

Femur,

Iliac and dorsal spine,

Clavicle, scapula,

Humerus, radius and ulna,

meshed in ancient parchment

of veins and capillaries

no flesh left

for the soul to live in.
