Bone Breakers (Short Version)


By Jolie Blond

People break our bones . . .

and we forgive them.

Breaking each others' bones

is just the way we are,

mad, flesh-eating, bone-breaking

carnivores that we are.

We break our mothers' bones

coming into this world;

breaking bones

to make our way into this mess.

Better to forgive a friend

who has broken our bones

than to risk more fractures

from new people,

strange, unknown, new bone breakers.

Once a friend has broken your bones,

THAT part of the friendship is done,

accomplished, a rite passed . . .

and a friendship based on mutual forgiveness

might have somewhere nicer to go.
