Written On The Body
*A Mairi Favourite*
Written on the body is a secret code only visible in certain lights: the accumulation of a lifetime gather there. In places the palimpsest is so heavily worked that the letters feel like braille. I like to keep my body rolled away from prying eyes, never unfold too much, tell the whole story.
I didn't know that Louise would have reading hands. She has translated me into her own book.
