Creative Corner: Lil Lockdown Toes

Me and my toenails are staying inside.

As I water my feet, with spiced bubbles,

they grow horned edges

that rasp through my socks and make holes


which I fix with thread and increasing neatness,

and in this way we pass the time together.  

When I ease clippers through their work

the pale crescent shapes recall for me


the moon, I lean, ape-like, out of my window, to see.        

We have everything we need.
