Dirt Dog

the three of us uncovered a classroom skeleton in playground sand
just the left arm, no shoulder
i wanted the rest of it

later that day i took a knife to my throat
cut a paper thin circle. Shoved a sponge down those froggy tubes
and pulled it back out
i would not be sick anymore

then i tossed the arm in a garbage bin
along with the sponge, put my skin back on
and pedaled back to the others on the Dirt Dog
