The red-dyed one here
is my stillborn son’s eye,
the tiny orb that made
my life complete.

The blue one is a filed
finger bone from my brother.
He would never touch me
that way again.

This, this was a souvenir
from a loudmouthed hitchhiker!
Gruesome, you see, but it would
shrivel into a husk in two months.

All the other glistening beads
did not have their meanings yet.
In time, they should earn their
names, gain souls, don faces.
