pallor

perturbed an aesthetic

inherited

 

your skin

contains

sunlight

 

i might

see if i can still back-flip

though

last time

i broke

my harpsichord

 

you remember the song

surely?

a much used

cassette

your poetry

sandwiched between?

iย  couldn’t close the lid

it was too fat

 

what if

we were

born without

skin

would everything

feel that much more?

 

perhaps what you see

isn’t thin

or pale

but what it looks like

when it has

peeled

 

exposing

too

much

and

not

enough

    This is some incredible wordplay and use of description, love. Yes!

  2. Stunning, as always. Love the form too, like little chunks of pure grit. You never fail to impress me! xxxxx
