digitation

Fingers
by GC SMITH

Fingers,
five of 'em
the middle one
stands out
a flag

Fingers,
five of 'em
the thumb
stretches out
to catch a ride

Fingers,
five of them
one an index digit
to riff
a book's pages

Fingers,
five of 'em
a gold band
not a nose ring
encircles one

Fingers,
five of them
the itty-bitty one
doesn't belong
in your nostril

Finger's,
five of them
clenched
thrust heavenward
high fives the world
