Noir et Ivoire

"East Coast sports fans are mean-spirited because there is no possibility of sex there." - Robert Arnquist

I'm numb to the sound of jewelry,
numb to the look of gloss,
numb to the feel of eyes on skin,
numb to the scent of skin fresh washed.

The world, in me, is changing,
the naked is no longer cruel
to young men and old ladies.
The girls at long last can be fools.
