Skeleton

If I had no skeleton
I could be mashed, moulded
Like the clay God spits on,
Breathes on, makes man of.

As it is, I am a rib.
I'm of the line of moon.
So let me fit the curve of lip
Like an instrument of peace;

Dove-throated chord.
I won't speak, except
In holy breaths I take
For holy songs to make.
