Mushroom Skeletons

something has been
      eating these 
   mushroom tops,

      cedar trees,
beside the creek.

   gently tickling
meat from bone,
so gently, no ribs
      are broken.

      so, when i look,
i see structures,
   skeletal fungi,

   now merely bones,
speaking of beauty 
that was, now gone.
      those good 
   times, try to 
ignore the lost.

we would miss 
      nothing if it
   wasn't sweet.
