skin

there are those days
when you feel strange in your
own skin – sometimes i think
moonlight or fluorescent lights
really bring out the hollow bone
death white from within and stretch
it across my face, walking,
feeling like one of those skeletons
found in one of those hidden
tombs in one of those hidden
sacrificial mounds
