Pachyderm

skinx

 

I used to think I’d like to be thick-skinned

Like a pachyderm

Then it wouldn’t hurt when your dreams

were overturned,

when people turned nasty and your heart

wants to explode

and it’s hard to walk defiant on that

long. lonely road.

But being thick-skinned essentially means

that you’re numb

And for an artist of any kind that’d be

Recklessly dumb.
