The showers that tell

DiamondTattoo

We all see the change

The shifts within our own humanity and the cracks and ridges that gleam under the luminous fluorescent lights the moment those all consuming waters wash over us.

We notice the things we hid from ourselves in the dry winds, open air and scalding sunlight while we wash clean our soiled hands and feet.

We know the truth the moment our skin’s rubbed raw as rivers of rapidly cooling waters stroke the intimate parts of our being.

There’s no hiding under the glare of that imposing nozzle.

We’re naked, vulnerable and real while our eyes close, our breathing deepens and our fingers explore.

We all know what’s changed; we feel it on our skin. It’s like mould; creeping, intrusive and oh so natural.

This is who we are; who we truly are.
