Skin Pain

By | 1 February 2021

Do you want it — my
Skin? You can have it.
I peel it off for you.
It’s free. I am voluntary.
I dress you with my skin.
To ensure that it doesn’t fall off,
I sew my skin over yours.
Does it hurt?
I am sorry but it must be.
To inherit this skin,
You must also inherit the pain.
