Poem 20

The open skin on my toe makes me worried
because it flaps around when it's loose
and sometimes makes the toe stick to the one
next to it. This is all because of a blister.
Don't pop a blister, everyone says, because
you want the fluid to recede back into your skin.
Stay calm and recede back into your skin.
And I don't even have a band-aid...
