skin like silk?

Who has ever written,
or cared to read,
of the desire to touch skin
so dry and thin,
as the finest silk always is,
it snags on your fingertips
and bunches up
as you caress it,
threatening to tear
and unveil
the fragile frame
over which it drapes?

(perhaps comedians and cynics or some senseless romantic hovering over a death bed)
