i live in a place,
where dirt is covered by grass.
the grass is covered with clover,
which is covered with newly wet leaves.
they are covered partially by a house,
that is covered by trees,
that are reluctantly covered by fewer and fewer leaves.

i stepped out of my house,
to just be covered by the trees.
i stood beside a cat....
covered with fur.

i took off my cover of clothes,
then my cover of skin.
i removed my cover of flesh,
then the bones one by one.
i was uncovered
because the rain could not touch me
my house did not notice.
but the trees did,
and the cat gave a wink.
