Poem #6: Body

These eyes have hosted a million tragedies
This heart has fought a thousand battles
These hands have handled a dozen mishaps
These feet have walked a score of miles
These fingers have picked at hundreds of scars
This head conjures terrible things
These bones are broken in many places
This mouth spits up vats of poison
These legs dance to the wrong instruments

This body is flawed
This body is broken
This body is mine
This body is strong
This body is perfect.
