ART/WORDS: Skin Talks

 Skin Talks are large pieces of pink rubber that symbolise skin.

The words show the imprint of trauma resides in my flesh. 


 ‘SKIN-TALK’ WORDS …


IMPRINT

The feelings got mixed in with the bruises

the hate got transferred onto me

the imprint

now visible on my skin

I can see it


UP AND BEYOND

It was like this

You stepped into your fantasies

and I slipped out of my body

I create a world where you don’t exist

I can hide inside a batten-burg cake,

hiding under the marzipan icing

I can roll around in the pink and yellow sponge,

where I will smell sweet smells

No. you are not coming into my land

But I will have to come back to yours
