in demographic process
natural selection breeds
one nation eugenicism

the great undressed
no longer just
beneath the surface


Author's Note: my restless state

It does feel like the "great undressings" of our time to me, by so many, revealing that which makes me want to hide. Well, perhaps it is good to know what is underneath?

I think of social media and how people undress. I would rather they stay clothed and modest. Perhaps something will happen and these unnatural acts will be selected and discarded. Not sure this approaches anything you intended at all, but it is my reaction. Thanks for thought provoking piece, Laura.

I can be scary what the mirror reveals ain't? Nice writting with a punch.
