Whom We Rub We Bruise
for M.L.R.

thin as skin
skin as thin as a frog´s skin

thin-skinned
barrier too insubstantive
to make much difference

offended by everything
by nothing at all

why as defensive-
as easily offended
as she is

is she also aware
of how often
of how constantly
she offends

without knowing
or without caring
or without caring too much
or without caring enough
that she offends

but out of proportion blows
what wrong is done her

even if done inadvertently
