Exercise 310701

No nail clipper

will touch my

big toenail now

that its been

open-toed these

past few months.

Left to grow

unwrapped, unbound, enjoying

the open breeze

and everyday sights

as my open

eyes, it has

spawned straight and

clean, not the

oft bent, warped

foundling it used

to within steel

caps and leathered

covers. No nail

clipper will touch

my clean toenail.

Me hopes it’ll

become a talon.

And then I

can start on

my wing span.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
