30 Days of Creativity- Day 18

A poem I’ve been working on.

Construction of a Spine

One that bends never
breaks with that cinematic
snap

Lines and lines
of heavy vertebrae
towering and

I could climb to the top
of my strongest spine
put out fires     end

invertebrates        save
the bees with backbones.
Let every creature stand.

My spines will sense changes
in the weather— complain
just before it rains

and ache for anhydrous
climate             to bleach them
invisible           invincible.
