Poetry: “Rings”

The years that leave their marks.

***~***~***~***

Rings

Split me open
Expose my bones
Count the circles
Count the rings

The fat and thick
Of happy times
Where bones grew solid
In my flesh

The leaner years
Those years gone wrong
Where shriveled soul
Made shriveled bones

Go read the story
There inscribed
The rings you see
There in my bones
