Imperfections.

Worn-off patches on the underside of my wristwatch. A long scar down my left calf that will never fade. Socks faded from brilliant white to brown from times when shoes just seemed superfluous. Subtly mismatched eyebrows. A slightly raised beauty mark on my collarbone that I reach up to rub every once in a while just for the knowledge that it's still there. The newly discovered knowledge that if you look carefully, my front teeth aren't aligned with the center of my face.

Someone must have taken my mouth and shifted it to the right when I wasn't looking.
