Bone Collector


along the water’s edge
by riverbanks or softly
lapping sea waves is
the best place for treasure hunting
although sometimes
I have to dig them up or
when I meet someone special
I rip a living harvest
from the startled
unprotesting flesh
washing red atop the white
staining them
sleek and shiny
sharp as stars
