Pieces and Parts

On the way home from the doctor's office, she thinks about anatomy--tissues and membranes, and how these thin walls keep everything from falling out. Veins keep the blood in, membranes keep the organs in, skin holds it all together. Amazing.

But sometimes these pieces and parts fail. Sometimes something springs a leak, or stops working, and there's only a thin membrane the width of one's skin stuck holding the pieces and parts together.
