Why Does Hair Grow Only on The Head?

I see a woman who has hair growing in her stomach. Her hair spills out of her duodenum, esophagus, and mouth. The woman tries to cut it with the scissors but she cannot keep up with the speed of its growth. Because she cannot swallow food, she’s becoming emaciated. For her, the smell of rotting food is as great as the noise coming out of the loudspeaker. But no one knocks at her door. The woman hides her tears in the fat of her cheeks. The hair coming out of her stomach pours out into the hall, and down the steps like ivy.
