    hmmmm, i can't figure out how to post the diagram. too bad for you.

    an elongated, flattened bone, the nude model, hard wooden stool, poised forming the middle portion spine straight knees tugging to be spread, almost dropping open anterior wall of the thorax. is a spread eagle sort of day its upper end supports sometimes when she sits she thinks of sleigh bells which consists of three parts, it keeps her steady, focused on a crack in the ceiling named from above downward:

    the manubrium,
    red pointy triangular
    & wiped clean
    the body or gladiolus, and
    us vs. us. vs. them, in fact
    the xiphoid process
    exhale then in and back again

    Figure 1 : also called breastbone

    in early life it is slightly convex in front and concave behind; broad above, becoming narrowed at the point and is rather longer in the male than in the female
    which suddenly seems not so obvious to me

    bone of a piecemeal a finger your fingerprint etched into glass
    tap tap tap

    nearer—a point of reference take my map out, unfold such as an origin, don’t let the creases fool a point of attachment, the midline of the body: the proximal end of a bone

    lying in a state like red or blue why can’t we make purple? intermediate means mid, middle position or—

    situated away from the middle, the center is heartless farthest from point of origin, long faced and frowny as of a limb or bone skim my chin with the very very tip tip

    also called fingers everyones’
