depends

talk to the parts.
pull them with words:
this way, over here,
almost almost.
a little farther.
telling the bones
might seem in youth
like giving a gift
your know-how
your executive direction.
they say, yes. yes.
the structure complies
in the early days.
only much later
do they occasionally
say can’t. won’t. no.
then it comes out
that they have been
giving gifts all along,
themselves,
and are now poor.
