The Waiting
hollow eyes looking out,
broken daze,
a boney skull full of knowledge…..
keeping a silent shout.
the next phase
of its life, pushed near the edge
shaded spectacles grace
that old mask
of the jumbled skeleton bones…..
together in one place,
put to task,
each dreaming of finding new homes
the backbones of a school
in holding,
dusty, waiting to be reborn…..
made as a teaching tool
the generations not yet born
