all  fleshfolk  share this  kind of  sea 
 within  them  that  soothes the  ache of 
             the rocky shores             
         does it erode the stone?         
        this water can be poisoned.       
 a  priority  is  the  flow of the blood, 
 and  the  oxygen level in it. it's  also 
 nice to maintain a low  viscosity level, 
          perhaps by hydration.           
 red  as night  and  warm  to  the  touch
