From "Beauty and adaptations" via Kenny Fries:


How else am i able to quench this thirst? My lips
travel down your backbone, drink the smoothness

of your pores and skin. i'm looking for the core:
What is gorgeous? Who comes to a decision? Can the laws

of nature be defied? Your physique tells me: come
close. yet good looks distances whilst it draws

me close to. What does my physique wish from yours?
My twisted legs round your neck. You bend

me again. even if you cannot provide the bones
at start I wasn't given, I allow you to deep inside.

You supply me—what? Peeling again my epidermis, you
expose my lacking bones. And my center, long

before you got here, simply as damaged. i do not recognize who
to blame. So each one evening, bare at the mattress, my body

doesn't wish fix, yet longs for innocence. If
innocent, regardless of the issues I put on, i'm beautiful.
