they are inside us. they grow old with us. when they’re sick, we get sick. they shine when we want to shine in flashes. they identify us better than fingerprints. they last longer than our bones. when we’re stressed, they are under pressure. they are the gate between the spoken and unspoken. increasingly we replace them with artificial ones; recently we have learnt to grow them. how much longer will they keep telling the story of our lives?
