safer in the dark (drawing by lurm)

it’s safer in the dark.

fake skin made of smooth flawless steel
won’t protect anything.

this is all it is;
melty rubber
the inside of a grape

slippery and slimy:
it will dissolve.

the sharp cold knows what’s really there—
the shriveled seed would crack under its light.

it’s safer in the dark.
