Caudex 
Cortex ... caudex ... codex
enveloping each iterative turn
it is the porous membrane that divides and covers
it is the rootstock ... lignin housed matrixial domain
caressed and stroked, covered and clothed
it is the skin
stretched thin ... the once protective mantle ... shaved and punctured ... peeled and scarified
inscribed and bound.
From flesh to word.
