25th Desert Summer - Aug. 23, 2022

my skin prickles

when I step outside


that’s each hairlet

grabbing a faucet

the pores installed

24 years ago


each worn-smooth handle

turns easily to fill

each small basin


before long I glisten

the sun’s reflection

off a wet bog of skin


some areas will pond

even overflow


places I’ve long known

to have leaky valves

that need replacing
