The Utility of Elasticity

​I have often marveled at the sheer impossibility of all the things our body manages to hold- our heart with its incessant beating, our lungs with all the pollution they take in, our digestive system with all the crap we manage to consume, and all the trillion neuron endings.Conducting the electric charges and maintaining the pH to neutral to acidic, often basic.

It also keeps in an entire universe of the inexplicabe variety of ways in which we feel. Keeps in the million ways we love, we spite, we conspire and rage

To burst out with all our true colours,

But it relentlessly, gently admonishes us,

Letting out just enough to let us live together, however badly and flawed; always enough to survive.
