These moments
Of nothing
Comply with my reason
For living
I can’t stand,
Even for a moment
This bareness
How can I say “I feel naked”
Without actually saying it?
Bend down on all fours
Pad softly with my paws
Into spaces of embarrassment
Wrap myself in big bulks of cloth
Like a cocoon
Inside a rustling of fabric
Caresses my ears
And assaults my eyes with blackness
It can’t be said with obviousness
It loses something that way
I’ll rip off my skin and show it to you

The fresh face of passion. There are a few lines in this piece that stand out for me such as,

"Pad softly with my paws
Into spaces of embarrassment"


"It loses something that way
I’ll rip off my skin and show it to you"

Intriguing piece.
