One Single Impression: Skin

[posted Thursday, January 8, 2009 -- postdated 'Sunday']


Skin is magical stuff to me
Bone cloak take for granted unless
scratches bruises are there to see
A small worry nevertheless

Hot wind blows it so very dry
T’will be all right for this old man
drug store’s magic fix I can try
Woman dare not leave hers to tan

A little too much wine I’ll flush
Still sway and dance with the royal
just go the merry night with blush
The next day’s sun I wake all pale

Freckles from my grandpa I got
Not a problem for me at all
I’ve lived with them they mean a lot
Though girls rue them a gift with gall

This funny skin now I reflect
Its God’s forgotten part of me
all in his glorious plan I ‘spect
I’ll gladly take it like it be

shiny sea of salt
shiny see of skin I like
