A Nod to My Phalanges

Hi everyone,

Clearly I have too much time on my hands. I asked a friend if I should get a life. She suggested, instead, a pedicure. Humph.

IMAG1493A Nod to My Phalanges
David L. Harrison

From where I sit
leaf-shaped alchemists
cast color, light, water, and air
into food,
and shingled creatures
prosper in anemic soup
of ingredients too small to see.

I, with my giant feet
somewhat worse for the wear,
am fleeting,
but my gun sight toes
bag visions of wonder
within a triangular universe.

    • Good morning, dear Jeanne. I’m currently using my toe picture as a screen saver. Hmm, maybe I do need a pedicure at that.
