Sans Epidermis

In the space between suns, I shed my skin to walk flawless amongst the touchstones of my heresies. Body slick and scar-less, snapped tight, taut over sinew exposed, nerve and muscle and bone; without protection in a wild land.   Not even the rules of nature apply in between worlds, but we were never “Higher […]

A Broken Ego
