[question asked by Jeff Carter]
Your toes will choose. They know
how to move along parallel lines
that stretch beyond the wisdom of your eye.
Which is the handsome twin?
Which the most silent corpse?
Can’t you tell the difference?
An unlikely pair, they share too much
for their relationship to last
out of more than boredom with the wash.
Soon, one catches a case of holes:
you wonder which foot strayed
against another straining touch than yours.
