Life model

lines lie along what’s underneath
map bone/ligament              …….shadow a vein
a trained eye can read misuse
assess the leverage                        flick     align

these are not the cobweb creases of eyes
screwed to the sun              ………not habit lines
or tells
they are geology and genealogy
