I Will My Soul

Take my bones and build a house–

a small one hidden

within plain view of the world.

Fashion windows from my eyes,

so that I may always see.

Let my heart be a great door–

the front one, always open.

And don’t waste my teeth;

make them into a wind chime–

I will smile forever.

My ears, place on the mantle

so that I may always hear

the sound of laughter…

or the sound of tears.

Take my bones and build shelter

for the truest souls.
