Lie in skin
does it fit
just right and
how does it
feel tight loose
do you like
the color the

it lays across
the bones do
you like the
way it feels
when someone else
touches it or

or cut it
or turn it
every which way
and can you
keep it clean
free of toxins
chemicals or burns
words and actions
so you can
trade it in
get credit for
repairs or just
wear it as
long as it
belongs to you.

There’s nothing better than watching a good sunset. All the colors: orange, red, yellow, pink are a sight to see. The sun blazes across the sky then dips down to sleep on that end of the earth at night.
