Skin 2

S            k            i            n

How thin that transparent, blue skin!

That layer of air from which we all

partake! That protecting blanket

of elemental gases nourishing

the blood of every creature

and all herbal substance,

while feasting our eyes

with glorious sunsets!

This membrane that

we all share is not

for sale! All lives

of this orb rely

on air–right

down to a

solitary

living

cell.
