Her face.
Her face had no eyes, no nose, and no chin to hold her face up.
But she did have a mouth and a tongue.

I really like the simplicity in this poem, yet it's so complex at the same time. Well done.

Thank you so much, and I know what you mean. I try to make all my stuff as simple but meaningful at the same as possible.

nice, nice, nice. i like how you battle the harshness of words by using so few. i hate poetry that tries to spell out its meaning and you left this one pretty simple and abstract. so good job.
