Let life’s residue breathe,
decongesting clogged pores –
gently exfoliate feelings.

Let collagen seep from beneath
rosy cheeks for pinching –
dermal filler extract for pottles.

Let minds’ eyes release
life’s specters from bone sockets –
bouncing retro looks.

Let flesh fall,
an old worn suit –
discard sartorial desires.

Rise from that seething, stinking mess:
light and free, as nothing –
in the starkest fashion.
