Clipping

Clipping (Source: Geo Davis)

Precision, I suppose, is the want of digits,
though I’ve paired my nails with guillotines
for the better part of four decades.
Habit guides my thumb and forefinger in the dark
as I follow the soft fingerprinted mounds.

Who says poetry about clipping one’s nails is slightly off? Starting now, I usher the rudiments of personal hygiene from the margins to the mainstream… Onward!
