Q117. What am I like when my body is not me?

A. It has neither a head nor a tail.


Do you wonder how it can see and speak when it has no head?
It has nothing to see and speak of when it has no head.

A wind finds its way even though it has no eyes,
Makes sounds even though it has no mouth,
And shakes things even though it has no hands.
