A poem “I am Nothing But Skin” by Carrie Jones

I am nothing but skin,

So you should be able to banish me

Like a forgotten post

On a computer screen somewhere

Talking about what someone ate for supper.

Let me be gone.

Let me be a quiet beneath a quilt.

Let me be an empty drain

Forgotten in its lack of use.
