the weight of bones

by Ayaz Daryl Nielsen

unknown bones
solitary murders, mass
executions, forgotten graves,
homicides, human sacrifices
abandoned, unknown,
the never known -
‘when we are of
body and spirit
they carry us
as we carry them
and when they are gone,
we linger and yearn
an earth-bound yearning
of the forgotten, the hidden,
and somebody, somebody
must tell us good-bye’
