My hair is black like the dark night sky.
My eyes are as brown as the debris of my latte.
My nose is wide like the infinite ocean.
My mouth is dry like the green cactus of the Saguaro desert.
My face is as round as mother Earth.
My body is full like my belly.
And my hands are soft like a bed of clouds.
