Oh.. that second stanza is just a killer!
You do know how to start my day!! I agree with Kerry, that second stanza is a killer indeed! Have a great day, MZ!!
This is my kind of religion...
See, only you write this kind of stuff. You're on such a roll, woman.
Wow. What an awesome writeMuch love...
This screams at me because of my ongoing study of the meandering Israelites complaining about manna...oh, cut your teeth already, you (wee/we) babies. Loved your closing.
Yes, only you writes like this. Fantastic, and the second stanza actually lifts off the screen and takes a turn or two around the room, it is that good.
what Shay said... ~
Hard to keep up with you, MomZe. Burried bones to manna to sky to the stars, with teeth and boobs left behind. Great!..
You are brilliant.
Weanwhen the skycuts teethOne must know the right time!Hank
This is close to the original relic, like a first fingerbone in a chapel of stone.
Awesome! My 2nd daughter cut a tooth at one month old and bit the bejesus out of my nipple. It hurt so badly, that I popped her little booty out of a visceral reaction. She never bit me again even though I breastfed her till she had a full set of teeth. LOL! xo
An admirable (and then some) combination of tight and evocative. First-rate stuff.
the second verse hits real hard !! well written !
"Wean when the sky cuts teeth," is a brilliant line.
A killer of a poem!
Just terrific. k.
