[autoimmune]

You look
And I feel my skin crackle just beneath the surface
I’m aflame from the inside
Mind providing the kindling
I’m losing sense of —
You look at me
And the chubby china doll face splits open
But no sound comes out
Save the snapping of heat filling my ears
On fire from the inside
You look at me and I hope
My skin falls off

Give Sharkey a piece of your mind.
