Poem by Robert Clinton:

The Skull of a Mouse

I found the skull and bones of a mouse behind a strip of window casing in a narrow cave between the window frame and the two-inch timbers of the wall.

There were his ribs and legs and teeth. There was the peck of shattered butternuts he and his father ate, and all packed in with thread and weed and horsehair.

I raked it out, the shroud of rotten wood and cottom batting, tenantless cocoons, insect sculptures made of carapace and wings, sawdust and safety pins.

The skeleton I sifted out into a paper cup: the twenty ordered toes, the backbone twisted to a hook. I reached my cat's paw in and tore the window out.
