Skeletal Bone

A skeletal bone
A flash of
The white
Clothes walking
Walking in radiantwhite
Up the steps
Up the roads
Round the tombs
And the graves
Of the cemetery.
That
Night
Was
Hot
And
Fetid
And
Sweat
And
Dark
Was
Pitch-dark
And
Silhouette
O
How
Went
That night!
O
How!
Dig
Dig
What
Fetch
You
Skeleton
You
Dig
Up
Then
You
Sudden
Dig
Back
As
The
Light
Of
The
Dawn
Be
First
Line
The
Sugar
Of
Phosphor
You
Drank
In
The
Night
And
The
Waters
Of
Slime
That
Seeped
Through
the
tombs
amongst
tombs
amongst
coffins
and
still
monuments
that
radiant
under
the
stars
burst
with
white
cutting
as
razors
against
the
dark
night
skeletal
and
magic
skeletal
and
magic
the
white
dress
that
walked
now
came
back
and
in
the
sump
of
its
grave
it
sunk
and
whirred
back
A skeletal bone
A flash of
The white
Clothes walking
Walking in radiantwhite
Up the steps
Up the roads
Round the tombs
And the graves
Of the cemetery.
