Jon Boisvert – Skin

Alone in the barn for one week, father sheds

his skin whole. He props it up in a chair &

gives it a notepad with mother’s name written

on every page. He smooths out its cheeks &

opens its hands wide. Then he slips out the

door & walks into the field. When he is far

enough away he waves, Happy Valentine’s
