Laundry

Bodies are like clothes:
Tissued tendons like fabric layered
Sheaths

Separable:
Spandex painted polyester boards
Canvas

Multi-textured:
Salt scrubbed Olive skins like chiffon cloths
Rhinestones

Secret sour hearts:
Wined veins like raspberry linens
Hiding

Underneath surface:
Blood drenched, redeemably gold-sparkle
Dusted.
