Ode to Pinkie Toes


Ode to Pinkie Toes

Renee Fornelli

You help me with balance.
You give my feet shape.
And when you are broken,
I heal you with tape.

The wee little piggy,
The smallest of all.
Why is it YOUR job
To locate each wall?

The first line of defence,
You spring back with strength.
But I’m sure each new break
Has affected your length.

You’ve been squished til you’re calloused
In uncomfortable shoes.
You’ve been blistered and banged
Til you’re one giant bruise.

You’re all sacrificed freely —
Take one for your teams.
Girls need you to round out
Our sandals, it seems.

I was inspired by an unfortunate incident this morning. Peace and love.
