2. THE HUMAN SKELETON

People also ask how many bones
are in the body of a child. The answer

is many. Small bodies are made for
keeping skeletons safe. A heart

won’t break if you drop it down
stairs but I can’t make promises

on legs. There’s a part of the body
stronger than steel but when it snaps

it can kill you. I don’t trust in strength
anymore. I have dropped a pumpkin

from a high height just to see a pumpkin
shatter. That witchy grin went tooth

to the ceiling. I have been strong once
and let me tell you it is overrated.

I have flung myself upon the world
like water and let me tell you—

The fun of a wave is when it breaks.
