RUB - E. Martin Pedersen (Italy)


-         E. Martin Pedersen (Italy)

Rub your body with oil

cover yourself with balm

have someone rub your muscles

tendons nerves and bones

find the sore spots

kinks and knots

press a strong thumb in

to let the juices flow

talk to your masseuse

someone you know

rub out your worries

frustration and pain

rage envy lust

then do it all again

treat yourself well

life ain't hell.
