Bone Breakers (Short Version)
(CLICK PIC FOR REVVER VIDEO)
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;
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.
