Friday the 13th (Remainders)

bones comp

What do shadows cast portend?
Roll the bones, he said, roll the bones.
The beginning has no end.
Roll the bones, he said, roll the bones.

Roll the bones, he said, roll the bones.
In the void all light is lost.
Roll the bones, he said, roll the bones.
Reassembled, double-crossed.

In the void all light is lost.
What is seen is not revealed.
Reassembled, double-crossed.
What was known has been concealed.

What is seen is not revealed.
Roll the bones, he said, roll the bones.
What was known has been concealed.
Roll the bones, he said, roll the bones.

Roll the bones, he said, roll the bones.
The beginning has no end.
Roll the bones, he said, roll the bones.
What do shadows cast portend?

    nice use of repetition; gives a greater sense of doom; of a dark rite.

    I love all the repeated phrases–like a song or chant–and all of the mysteries.
    The print does look like bones.

    This is the kind of poem to chant out loud. And I love the bones hanging in the dark.
