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
