Outcast

Look at this skin
Check out its setting
Notice how it contrasts
Watch as it’s shedding

Speak a few words
Note their low worth
Measure how they affect
Guess if they’re working

Live out an ideal
Examine if it’s real
Reverse the polar longing
Seek out a reckoning

Trial a new style
Trace down its trail
Mark all that prevails
Pretend you’re not pretending
