Physics and Mechanics

Lie in skin
does it fit
just right and
how does it
feel tight loose
do you like
the color the
smoothness the way
it lays across
the bones do
you like the
way it feels
when someone else
touches it or
you nick it
or cut it
or turn it
every which way
and can you
keep it clean
free of toxins
chemicals or burns
words and actions
so you can
trade it in
get credit for
repairs or just
wear it as
long as it
belongs to you.
