Ligament to ligament
bone to bone
Symmetrically unidentical
each finishing an arm


Ultra violets permanently
blemish the outer core


Nails lack in vitamins
jaggedly carved like half-finished sculptures


A pinkish hump no larger
than a tiny pebble shows
the recent meal of an insect


Though they are fortunate
as many from war-ridden countries are
torn from owners
For that I am grateful
To hold
To grab
To write this poem
