This poem came out of the April 2013 Muse Fusion in Torn World. It was inspired by a prompt from LiveJournal user Vaerys, along with continued discussions about touch aversion as an everyday challenge rather than something that has to be "cured." It is a sequel to "Stinging Like Nettles."

In the Northern culture of Torn World, children are raised collectively rather than by pairs of parents. Here Lekeeth shows sympathy for someone with a similar challenge to her own touch aversion. If you're new to the science-fantasy setting of Torn World, you might want to start here.
