Nuanced Survival

by Sol Sigrid Smulhay

We have forgotten that

this body is a bullet train.

Springing from the chest

are the rib cages that carry

armors for the lung. Melanin

is not an accidental painted

ink on this lifemap. Every

body part is a gift for the

future. Every future is not

the perfect resemblance,

it is merely survival that

flourishes the nuanced

strands. How long until

survival is the only path

allowed at the stands?
