Confused

 

Self Portrait Nude: Egon Schiele

 

He wants take his skin

He wants to be in his skin

The frustrated little guy

Wants out of his own thin skin

 

 

Is my skin safe, is yours is hers?

 

 

He wants out of his  skin

He needs to be rid of his skin

The frustrated little guy

Trolls for skin

in his car

on foot

by tweet and by book by hook and by crook

 

 

How will he take the skins,

how will he steal those skins,

how will he wear those skins

once they are his?

 

 

Will they smell? Will they talk? Will they scream

against his own bones?

 

 

He really doesn’t care because

 

 

He wants take his skin

He wants to be in his  skin

The frustrated little guy

Wants out of his own thin skin

 

 

Will he remember once he wears those skins

that he

trolled for those skins

in his car

and on  foot

by tweet and by book by hook and by crook

 

 

Will he be able to forget

will he be able to make us forget

The frustrated little guy who

cut away, who tore away

with desperate his own desperate hands

his own thin skin.

  1. Wow this was really painful and itchy to read! I loved it. The way you use skin as a thing in its own right really just makes this all the better.

    1. It does have a life of its own! I was at a tattoo shop watching the artists at work and that’s when I really felt the sense that the skin was expressing itself as opposed to just being a decoration.
