Skin

Write about your skin. 
Write about how dirty you are 
with layers of soiled dermis that
cannot be scourged from your limbs - 
losses not repaired by deeds 
dutifully consummated 
in benevolence. 

Write about your uncomfortable skin -
how you peel the outer layers to release the pain
oozing inside out red relief
staining the world in hemoglobin 
transferring our conscience
in a reciprocity of 
comfort for forgiveness.
