My favorite bird is the crane,
I’m no plumber, but I got pipes and drains.
Without a mirror, I’ve never seen your face,
I carry your world, but I am not in space.
A constant heavy burden I assist,
My favorite dance is the twist.

What am I?

You're a

neck! Specifically, I think you're MY neck.

My favorite bird is the crane,

You can crane your neck

I’m no plumber, but I got pipes and drains.

Your neck has a windpipe, and an esophagus (which will drain down to your stomach.

Without a mirror, I’ve never seen your face,

It would be rather difficult for a neck to see a face.

I carry your world, but I am not in space.

Your neck carries your head (which contains your brain, and your consciousness, which would be your world).

A constant heavy burden I assist,

Keeps your head up all day.

My favorite dance is the twist.

You can twist your neck, though I admit I twist mine more often as a stretch than a dance move.

Title bonus

Pain in the neck.

  • $\begingroup$ You got it! I was feeling it might be a bit too obvious but had fun coming up with it. Also, I pinched a nerve in my neck on Monday and I can't get it off my mind! $\endgroup$ – benhameen Aug 23 '18 at 21:48
