Oregonia Cracilis

Oregonia Gracilis

We scramble and we scuttle through our days,

Oregonia gracilis, shells marred.

Perpetually blind in our red haze

To all the layers covering our scars.

To beautify, to protect, or to hide,

We affix over truths labels and lies,

As if all that we are deep down inside

Were deficient when spied by others’ eyes.

Reasonably, we veil because we’re scared;

This world so full of hatred gives us pause,

And often we’re tragically unaware

Of all that we defend with our sharp claws.

But to see clear, love free, and feel alive,

Strip to soft skin! Vulnerably thrive!
