Day delivered
Lesions throb
Night’s skin

Skin spread
Across body
Thick thin

Thin patience
Cries in sleep
Before petering

Out of school
Tales told cued in
By dried saline lines

Tears restrained
In light of day held
By deadpan face

Face at night
Allowed to fall
slacken jaw

Jaw(ing) about palm’s
Played out lifeline
Fortune’s spottiness

Living life true
In own skin
