A fingernail.
Three distinct shades of color have never performed so much:
relieved the unbearable itch on the unreachable inch of skin,
sliced open the 99th love letter, memories of an everlasting marriage.

Stretching between two magnificent segments lies the neck.
This arch bears the weight of a stubborn mind
while controlling all sustenance passing through.

Bellybutton.
Navel.
A passing of one life to the next.

Ears, the endless curves of beauty.
These two features on opposing ends of a face
open an entire world of noise.

A body.
Just a body.
But it’s so much more.
