I plant my feet in the thick brown earthen paint.
I feel it seep in between my toes.
I feel good for a little while.
Then the thick layer hardens and grows heavy.
It’s natural; crystalline.
And some even say it has the power to heal yet I grow ill
Tempered with time I become dirty.
Take it back to basics and it’s just dirt and water.
Put it in a tile lined tub next to seaweed raps and sugar scrubs
Does it somehow become less unclean?
