Tristan Moss: A Chair's Address

I could tell you
that humans
are no more than smelly,
sedentary creatures,
whose main organ
for communication
is their arsehole.

But this would be telling you
nothing new.

It's how the oil and the dirt
of their skin
builds up on us
that bothers me,
and how the darker it gets,
the more they approve,
until finally
they think
it's a part
of our beauty.
