Shed my black coat

by You Have My Word

[Shut door]

Process begin:

like snakes lose skins,

I shed my black coat.

Unbutton.

Drop.

Snags as it falls.

Now black mass at my feet.

Skin deep; skin clear.

Standing exposed.

Sans shield.

Dark weight lifted (lost).

Like snakes lose skins,

so I shed my black coat.
