AFTER LOSING

After losing all my teeth
will they come back as birds

after losing all my bones
will they come back as arrows

after losing all my languages
my tongue my wings

will they come back as black notes
for blind musicians

after losing all there is to lose
will the dark claim the wind
by the light of a dead candle
