Weight of Skin

I dreamt of a flannel shirt that was so translucent I could sun my pecs in winter. It is important to keep up appearances when it comes to skin color. We're all married to this weight and this weight is so heavy and the weight is married to us. When our skin tones are too fare we stick out and become easy marks. But it gets so cold. Despite the constant sunlight I never want my skin exposed to this chill. My cousin once got so pale in the winter months that he was mistaken for a wisp of air and the controllers of the universe sucked him into the atmosphere as if he was nothing. I think about that cousin a lot. Almost every time I breathe in and sometimes even when I breathe out.
