Mushroom Skeletons

something has been
      eating these 
   mushroom tops,

      underneath 
      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.
 
      remember 
      those good 
   times, try to 
ignore the lost.

we would miss 
      nothing if it
   wasn't sweet.
