You ask me how I am; I’m fine, I’m fine
My toes have fallen off from walking barefoot in the snow
But I didn’t need them anyway, I’m okay
It’s you I’m worried about, grey –faced and dull-eyed
What’s going on, old friend?  You’ve lost weight
Your step is slower, your shoulders stooped, are you in pain?
I see you’ve lost your toes as well
Let us walk together then; daylight will come in time
Fees unfinished... I may tinker with it some more.

Toes in the snow.

What an image.

I'd say sew them back on but that image
is just as haunting as yours.

This piece's meaning to me is denial in the face of the inevitable, right until the bitter end. Maybe that's not what you intended, I couldn't know. All I know is I liked it.

Thanks for the opportunity to read your work.
