born a week too late, she had melancholy in her bones: doctor lizbet took time out of her schedule to pluck her newborn strings - calloused sanitation against mottled pink-and-yellow flesh & thrashing limbs.
in three more years, she will have nothing in her bones at all: doctor estair diagnosed her with iatrophobia to fuel her instinctive chords - ripple-free shells of liquid lobotomy & a capsule to callous her pink-and-yellow flesh against the thought of just getting over it all.
ten years after that, her mother will find her face down and thrashing: her dust bunny bones will flex as she retches up her memories for display - lawyers will spend the next few years pawing through them with clawed hands and heaving breathing until one day, they find lizbet and estair huddled amid the rubble of her bones.
Okay so I am confused are you saying the doctors poisoned her??? " lawyers will spend the next few years pawing/ through [her memories] with clawed hands and heaving breathing until/ one day, they find lizbet and estair huddled amid the rubble of her bones." So their hiding from the lawyers in the main evidence, the bones? Is that it? But why would they do that? The idea of a violin also makes me think that she is being manipulated, "pluck her/ newborn strings" doesn't sound good.
Anyone agree with me or have their own interpretation?
Its a poem done in a mostly fantastic/artistic style. There isnt much of a plot to question. (Its anyones guess what the story is about and im sure thats what the author wants, you to guess what the story is about)
i don't quite get the message - which is really not unusual with poetry - but it reads very nice. I've read it three times now and it has a wonderfull flow to it, except for the "heaving breathing" in the second to last line. Somehow I keep stumbling over that.
