The Meaning of Skin Colour

A poem by Joti Heir

If you were boiled

Not that you should be

Terrible it ’twere

But let’s just say for example

If you were boiled

And then peeled

What colors would your innards be?

Yes, exactly

So then I guess

Skin coating signals human character

As much as an m&m’s coating signals flavor
