proximity between skins

you have a duty to
the moist pink lungs
in your chest
and the red blood
flowing through your heart.
a favor for the blue
of your eyes
and yellow
subcutaneous
tissues.

Outside of any
walls there are
deep green cedar branches
and grey ocean waters
and white sea gulls
that ask only
for you to create
stark color juxtaposition
of what is inside of you
with what is outside.
Please heed this desire
for proximity between skins,
for the acknowledgement
of this critical kinship
in the brief moment
that is your life.
