Sweet Skin

I get tired of myself.
Kind of like how people get tired of their clothing.

If only I could throw my skin away,
clear out the closet, and drain out my blood.
I’d use Frisbees as my vertebrae,
and grow out of the ground as a bud.

My voice is so annoying to my ears now. When I speak I cringe and my nose gets all wrinkly. 
It looks like how your fingertips feel when you get out of a pool. People laugh at me and tell
 me that my face is weird when I talk. I never really listen to them because all I can ever
 think about is how I want their sweet skin.

    This is cute Katie but I don't think you'd want my old skin. Congratulations. Love, Joyce

    I wasn't sure if I should laugh or cry when I read your poem. Keep your own skin my dear.. Frisbees as vertebrae is a wonderful line. l. Congrats on a top spot. BG
