Tough Skin

you want the system to break down
so that something better can emerge
but will the change be worth the pain
is it not just writhing Medusa's snakes
lava bubbling inside the ripped body
painful spots breaking the tough skin
you can't afford to be as soft as you are
needing order overwhelmed by weeds
dancing sprightly on the edge of chaos
horrified another backwater devastated
modeling innocence no animal can feel
to open up a space where life improves
