Human Body

During a supremely fun day at my grandfathers with lots of people, food, and drinks, a few of us stayed up until 4 am. During that time we did some really enjoyable poetry exercises. These two poems are from one we did where the topic was 'the human body' and the poems had to be five lines. 

They say matter is conserved
but such a small thing gets so large
and I guess it makes sense
food is matter too
but who can fathom
how babies grow?


Your long legs lengthen themselves out
across state line
and when your lips curl into an 'O'
all I can say is 'definitely'.
