“Is There Such a Thing as a Left and Right Sock?”

September 7, 2017

                                    [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.
