Shifter

Peel back the skin
simple flesh
a meaningless
misdirection

Open out the heart
jeweled with virtue
keeping time
for the dance

Tease the limbs
a marionette
slack and slanted
coquettish

Render the soul
visible, exposed
every color and shade
melding and swirling

As the me
within me
moves without

– Caroline A. Slee
