Not quite naked

  • 1

And so we stand: network of scars,
shadows of arteries and veins
pressing up beneath the surface:
nakedness, not quite beyond
the nakedness of bodies,
exposing concealment
in place
of something raw and beating:

the almost invisible suturing
of secret hurts
evading lips and knowledge –
shadows like smoke touched
and unknown.

the tracing
of each tuft of hair,
each inch of skin:

the stopping up
of openings

where unravelling
may begin.
