Ode to dedos 
Ten on your feet, 
Ten on your hands
Dedos de pies
Dedos de manos.
Big toe reigns king
Queen thumb holds court.
Those in between 
Balance and clasp
Spread weight and comfort.
Hidden foundations
Calloused workers
Not to abuse.
Refined by shoes.
Polished and manicured.
Dressed in warmth,
Socks and gloves.
Ready to run,
Ready to hold,
All for our loves.
