I pick scales off my
wrist. Am I becoming a
lizard? Desert sands.

Yah, you're definitely right

Thank you, Leafy :D 

Y'know, most of the published poetry I've read *elsewhere than teenink* has, as a general rule, been very unstrung and spontaneous. Nonsensical even, if you will.

I totally agree with you guys, the world just needs more spontaneousity (lol idk if that's an actual word XD ), and this poem helped to do that, great job ^_^

And it's so important, because we're all unstrung ourselves.

Diola le, dearest friend, it seems that few people really appreciate the random, unstrung side of poetry.

Ha, it seemed to make a lot of sense to me; but that might be because I like to bring sense out of nonsense and interpret the lines scattered "randomly" across my palm.

Lovely randomness, the kind that inches along the floor like a caterpillar. Bothersome to some, but quite pleasant to others.

Haha, yeah. It's really just random, about dry skin and the fickleness of thoughts.

I am sorry but this haiku doesn't make any sense to me at all. :(
