Rhythm Bone

God’s been a walkin’

in the valley of the dead,

God’s been a makin’

music with words unsaid,

God’s been a playin’

songs that clack instead,

God’s been a breathin’

life into bones long fled.

Can’t you hear that rattlin’,

dry bone on bone,

rising up from their

damned dirt deathbed?

Even among the dry it’s known,

God plays a mean set

of rhythm bone.*

Ezekiel 37:1-14

*rhythm bone, a folk instrument consisting of bones or wood that makes use of the clacking sounds produced by shaking loose bones together held in one or both hands
