My Bones will be Mountains

My bones will lie here in the dark
for a million years
Joining the darkness
Joining the rock
Until they are no longer bones
But rock
And an eon from now
The roiling and turning of the earth
will push that rock
into the light of the sun
And my bones will be mountains.

-Lance Foster, 4/4/15
