The last man is no fun
relaxing type of lotus [open]
eater open to untamed
pleasure but rather hates
life in its unclean wilderness
seeking the whetted
edge to press against and shave
clean skin unexposed
to elements in history
wondering why melanomas
develop a pox on all houses so
I make my habitat outside
