My Skin, A River

from by Nick Neihart



You wanted my body,
I wanted your mind.
Let's split each other open
and rob the other blind.

I will be your river
full of precious stones.
Skin cascading gently
over sinew and over bone.

You, you are a ruby
in the gravel pit.
There with all the hardened,
the cruel and slow of wit.

Oh you are a ruby
this world wears you on its hand.
You adorn it as with jewelry,
yet you take me as I am.
