  4. bees behind the eyes
  5. bruise on the inner thigh
  6. word-noose
  7. mermaid’s voice
  8. ghost hands
  9. holes in the mouth
  10. the teeth that chewed the holes
  11. fingernails & stomach acid
  12. heaviness of the breasts
  13. technical difficulties
  14. pills, but nothing fun
  15. smallness
