Bones II

 

There are bones of the dead everywhere, and they’re sharp. Under your feet as you walk across your yard, in the cement of buildings, under the foundation of your home, in the coffee you drink, in the food you eat. Science estimates 100 billion human beings have lived and died. There are bones everywhere. There are skeletons everywhere, from universities to unnamed places we really don’t want to know about. We love skeletons as we are walking skeletons. There’s an old phrase about skeletons in the closet. What if the skeleton in your closet is real? Hell, maybe you own a skull and it’s placed near your computer as your skeletal fingers press the keyboard. When we look at strangers, friends and family we fail to see the skull behind the face. And the eyes of skulls are dark and deep. Dig deep and give me a story about bones.
