I recognize the depth of that feeling and thank you for giving it a shape and image that helps me make some sense of it, or at least feel it in a way that is less alone. Isn't that the true gift of a poet? "Loose skins full of emptiness." I won't shake that impression easily.
Love it, and what a great title.
I have this collection and another one. I think Rebecca is a very emotional and savvy poet when it comes to surviving, thriving on life, and so much more.
