is a page 
about skin.  
Not skin care, 
not tatoos, not 
This is about 
skin itself, 
the stuff we're 
all wrapped in, 
the stretchy 
elastic membrane 
that keeps all the 
inside stuff inside, 
and all the outside 
stuff outside.  
Skin is the edge 
that defines us.                 

Without skin, 
where would 
you be now?
