Vanish, No Trace

It's not your skin.

Skin-suit since birth.

Sinew-stitched. Snug.

For what it’s worth…

Smothering hug.

Pattern of Old,

Skin-Cloth Clippings.

Inspired, Bold, this

Ancestral Thing.

“For your own Good!”

Protective Sheath.

“This Mask of Love!”

You die Beneath.

A Life inside

another’s Face.

YOU. ‘ever hide.

Vanish, No Trace.

It’s not your Skin.

Ancestry bound.

You are within.

Will you be found?
