Identifying features

Soon enough your skin flakes off, your nails and hair grow until they need to be clipped, old socks get holes and are replaced with new ones, your DNA becomes new DNA, or something like that, and suddenly you're an imposter. Though if you're a new person, with new socks, maybe this means your memories aren't yours anymore, either. They belong to that other person, who is also an imposter pretending to be you. Liar! Well, you can scream, or you can turn to the present moment, which is wholly yours.
