Here’s some interesting facts about the human heart. A human heart can continue beating even when it’s disconnected from the body. It weighs less than one pound and most heart attacks happen on a Monday. So maybe that’s why when the week starts, I notice all the missing pieces from my aorta. My bare feet melt into the cold floor and gravity greets my body like a long lost friend. I put on my transparent clothes, staring at a faceless mirror. The shadows dance in a welcoming circle in the star encrusted room. They acknowledge me with a smile and for the first time that morning, I felt alive.
