All the steadfast parts

I propose that when we come of age
we get a copy
of our full body x-ray
as a reminder
of all the steadfast parts
working day and night
to keep us alive
for then we would perhaps
not pour in
so much poison
or test the stack
of a spine
by driving so fast
and maybe
instead of critiquing
our thighs or wishing
for a thinner nose
we would compare livers
and post selfies
of our perfect
hearts.
