Flesh, Ken Nordine

Flesh, as a color, is in a awful mess
- yes, ask anyone with flesh, they'll tell you
Flesh, as a color, is about as close to a problem as a color can get.
Some people think the only color flesh color should be is the color their color flesh is 
wich - pure and simple - is colorcentric thinking, popular in some corners 
But you and I know though that
The proper color for flesh to be is: the proper color it is
Varying from complexion to complexion
But if black flesh and white flesh, and brown flesh, and red flesh, and yellow flesh, and tanned flesh - if all the fleshes that are flesh would establish similarity among differences
we better forget flesh and the colors it can be
And think on the spirit, and in singular light
Otherwise, flesh as a color could be black and blue or even a bloddy hue.
