Our bodies are made of carbon,
But our bodies are individually pigmented.
I never understood that.
Because when I was putting carbon pellets into a filter bag,
It stained my fingers black,
And the only part of my body that it matched
Was the bruising of my knuckles
From trying to put your memory into the drywall.
