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
