Flesh

Bodies everywhere
Thin, fat, flawed, fit, firm
If the body is the vessel
Is the mind the soul?

Tattooed bodies, pierced bodies, plain bodies
Hot bodies, sensitive bodies, lukewarm bodies

More similarities than difference
Minute intricacies that defeat
The purpose of clothes

Some want to expose
Some need to impose
their mark on their selves
the chi flows

Through skin, tissue, and bone
Words slice and leave no trace
While bullets puncture and shatter
An affectionate touch seeps
