Hiakus by Dee girlfriend has psoriasis, so...

The dog has dandruff
No!  Wait!  This is not his skin!
Your skin covers him.

My psoriatic love
Sheds her skin like a reptile
I sleep in skin cells

There's flakes on the floor -
Wait!  I just vacuumed in here!
Go outside and scratch!!

Oh psoriatic itch
I want to dig to the bone.
Please!  Please!  Scratch my back!

Sweeping off the sheets
A nightly ritual we
Adhere to always.

I wish It would snow.
Soft white falling from the sky
Instead of your back.
