Skin IMG_4058

knuckle rough, heel cracked

brush off the dried up

white to the floor–

such a waste

of good currency!

bought the bus seat,

no questions,

bought the truth,

come the trial,

bought laws and police and—

 

enough!

let it go

down to dust,

peel back those cells,

fabric binding us together,

see? the same pulsings beneath.
