Body Parts

I read we can feel our          Muses in our bodies. In brains, hearts, thyroids? Spleens, livers, adenoids? My Muse dwells in a layer        of dermis. "I've got you under my skin," I sing, and she takes to wing in earnest. Melpomene, on bended knee, I          beg you return and refract me. Even when you're in my skin, I promise I'll not scratch thee. If your Muse resides inside         your feet, lies a spondee in your sole? A trochee in your toe? Ah, the pitter-patter of feated meter.
