Little Boy’s Essay On Anatomy
Your head is kind of round and hard, and your brains are in it and your hair on it. Your face is the front of your head where you eat and make faces. Your neck is what keeps your head out of your collar. It’s hard to keep clean. Your shoulders are sort of shelves where you hook your suspenders on them. Your stomach is something that if you do not eat often enough, it hurts, and spinach don’t help none. Your spine is a long bone in your back that keeps you from folding up. Your back is always behind you no matter how quick you turn around. Your arms you got to have to pitch with and so you can reach the butter. Your fingers stick out of your hands so you can throw a curve and add up arithmetic. Your legs is what if you have not got two of, you cannot get to first base. Your feet are what you run on, your toes are what always gets stubbed. And that’s all there is of you, except what’s inside, and I never saw it.
