a wonder more are not bitten

and of those more

are not sickened


      aging necessities slip in

      faint with hope

      for fever renewed


      hands rise

      and sink in time

      to a heart


      beating ribs

mea culpa

mea culpa

mea maxima culpa


      cartilaginous serpents

      centuries gnarled

      skins too tight to shed


fill me slithering

      shifting cells

      leaving a windblown dandelion


another new years memory

of other new years

remembering others
