Thin Skin

Translucent begs opaque:
may I be seen
but not through;
terror slakes dry skin
to turn the sight to sand.

It slipped through another
set of fingers
to defy the wishes 
of every other shape.

To wish is to fold
in advance 
while to wait 
is to ensure
the paper cutter slash.

Coagulation is not

can't ensure

In this bet
there is no house
and I won't win.
