Perhaps It’s Loosening

What do we do
but trust the river
cold stones smooth all over
the current began
so long ago

This is Toma's third session with Skin on Sundays. She also appeared in episode 5 and episode 28. This time, I wanted to write using one of her beautiful tattoos as inspiration, so I wrote from the perspective of the unicorn squirrel on her thigh. The mysticism that exists in nature is at the core of this poem, not only taken from the energy of the tattoo, but of its bearer.   Photos taken by Candydub Media.
