self-compromise

she stripped all the hair from her body
until her skin thinned and wrinkled like that
of a naked mole rat, smoothing over her curves
like the coating of jelly beans. as she snuggled next to
her partner, who then caressed her bare skin,
she wondered if she could ever embrace this newfound nakedness.
