    Opinions on this poem

    Made too paper thin
    You bought yourself a second skin;

    Tucked in tight to hide the crumbling.

    Housed within
    The thick of it
    The core is a trembling sparrow,

    Left out in the cold
    Of the deepest sheltered shadow.

    The chemistry can seem
    So insubstantial.

    There is danger in your veins

    One knock
    One shudder
    Away from centre
    Sets you reeling for days,

    Out of ordinary orbit
    To a ceaseless spin.

    When the edges become untucked
    You will spill,
    Onto anything that still clings.
