getting dry

 the skin on my calves
 has scales.
 reptilian.
 cold blooded.
 from toes to head
 i am drying out
 the way meat left out
     too long
 loses its appeal
 loses flesh to rind
 the way closing time
 forces bottomless livers
 to shut up shop
 wrung out
 strung up, sleepless
 too long
 in the sun
