Artist's Description

Sober -by my genius of a twin.

We fell out of our skin.
It was uncomfortable, as you can imagine,
staring at each other with no skin.

We scratched out a conversation,
like a game of noughts-and-crosses
in the dirt beside a school bus-stop.

The previous night’s tall stories
gave way to stilted words, and
the sun was fluorescent,
buzzing and flickering
as it burned our bleeding, skinless flesh.

This was awkward.
I wrung my hands. You smoked.
Time crawled.

And we both stretched the tendons in our faces
as we politely pretended to forget
that we weren’t wearing any skin.

Or any clothes.
