Explanation of Facial Features

Her nose is sharp
Straight shot. Any
Bump of the bridge
Shaved down. The
Bones reassembled
According to tradition.

This lovely number
Was done by staring
At imaginary images
For so long that her
Own face became

And this why you
Must never watch
The television too
Long. Or read books
In dim light. You
Risk damaging the eyes.
