Eggplant leather skin
Beaten With tiny tenderizers
Dandelion liver spots
Bone white teeth
Pierced blue lips
And marbled eyes
Separate me like laundry, place each part of me in different coloured baskets.
Pour fabric softener down my throat, soften the lumps I keep choking on.
I’m not clean…. I can’t get this filth out from underneath my skin.
