a corrective device used by a man who suspects his soul has developed a slow leak
The soul patch often takes the form of a small patch of facial hair
below the lower lip. This position assumes that the soul resides in the mouth or chin, and that air released through the mouth that might eventually result in a flat soul--typically the result of a punctured ego. Growth of a soul patch reflects a desire to minimize an imminent loss of traction in the spiritual matters.
