people are the most vulnerable
when you are naked in bed with them

we wear our clothes like walls
in winter we put up so many of them

when we are naked there are no woolly sweaters to hide behind
there are no t-shirts with band names on them
there are no floral prints

there is only a sea of skin
ribs and elbows

there is you
and there is

and my heart is so much closer to your hand
when your hand is touching my skin
it is closer to everything in me

we take off our clothes
we take off our skin
there is nothing we cannot see now
