The Hidden Skeleton by Angelo Letizia

Bone stars structure a universe 

Like a billion spines 

But they facture  

The universe is trying to crush me 

Maybe some god  

Will build something new 

On top 

Old universes become floors  

And seedbeds 

Dead emperors and forgotten blacksmiths 

Who made a village run 

Domesticated cats  

And plastic wrappers 

Become soil 

Where something un-named may grow
