THICK-SKINNED DAY

 

 

 

 

 

By Lisa Huddleston

 

Today my skin feels thick

Too fat to feel through like when kids put two fingers together and rub them as if they were one

Dead on one side and too much feeling on the other

Today I am numb on the outside and too sensational on the prickly in

Thick shelly skin full of thin yolky spirit

Protected or imprisoned?

God only knows

But today my skin feels thick and I long for thinner skin
