brief collection of thoughts on an interesting anatomical detail
as i was floating in a sea of brine
a fence of bone grew 'round this heart of mine

12 sets of spears with pointed tips that gleamed
did sprout inside my body while I dreamed

when I awoke I felt them with my hands
and found that they would bend to my demands

with each inhale they shifted, making room
for both my lungs, like roses red, to bloom

and with each sigh they shuddered, closing in
to shield the beat and breath that moved within
