From her chapbook, Life Forms

Funny how skin is waterproof
I think
As I look at the beads of water
Drip
off your freshly showered back
How it can stretch
Over our bones
Protect our vital organs
Heal itself from wounds
How it wrinkles
etches wisdom
onto our faces
How it takes a lifetime
to finally feel
comfortable in
