Let your flesh fall away,
like an old worn suit.
Let it hit the floor in a pile,
with your hopes, dreams and fears.
Let the collagen seep from beneath your skin into a sticky pool.
Cheeks that were once plump and pinchable,
now hollow.
Let your life’s memories escape from your pores.
Let those images roll out from your eye sockets,
and bounce.
Rise from that seething, stinking mess –
light and free,
as nothing.
