In My Skin, and then I'm Not

I don't normally feel comfortable with poetry, but with family... Thanks to everyone who showed up at UTH.

They're talking again,
about flags and coffins
contracts and coffers,
and I'm angry,

In my skin,
and then, I'm not,

I'm driving again,
At day end music playin
In the ground they're layin,
and I'm crying,

In my skin,
and then, I'm not,

Calm collected again,
As I pull into the place
Pipes play "Amazing Grace",
Back to pieces,

In my skin,
and then, I'm not,
