the tyranny of skin

i feel
jittery
odd
my birthday suit's
a size too small
i shake
with the sheer
amount of stuff
bone
muscle
sinew
emotion
held tight with
bands of flesh
keeping me
a single being
slowing my diffusion
slow and inexorable
into my surroundings
this house
so long hated
a part of me
meat
muscle
mind
mortar
losing consistency
even as i lose
my social inhibitions
my geographical limitations
floating
from place to place
and person to person
there
everywhere
at every time
breaking up
breaking free
if only my skin
would stop
holding me
so tight
