Sevenling: Life is a Drying

September 2, 2008

(after the Merina of Madagascar)

Life is a drying, a journey
from water to dust. The skin hangs,
the blood slows, flesh hardens and turns

to wire and stone. And death is a drying.
The grave leaches life’s liquids.
Flesh lets out its water, skin crisps to ashes.

We humans are nothing but gravedust and bone.
