Skin of the world



If beauty, as the saying goes, is only  
deep as skin

then I can say that beauty is 
in everything 

for every layer in the world, 
thick or thin

is a skin that’s laid upon 
and within
 
a skin around a skin 
between a skin

and every thing can only ever  
be a thing
 
by virtue of the definition 
skin can bring
 
every fold unfurled on deepest beauty
held within
