Peel the Skin

If when the skin peels away
you bleed orange slices and mango sweat,

then you’ve been spending too much
time with the clouds.

If, however, you find the image
of a snake, or other cold-blooded reptile

you might look in a mirror

to find the septuagenarian you
staring back at you—

this is when the real magic happens!
