Foot

On the bottom of my left foot there is a scar from a leech bite

On the top, a scar of a spider bite…and another leech bite

On the front, scuffed crumpled toes from wearing boots

On the left side, swelling from a poorly healed broken bone

On the right side, the drooping arches of a flat footer.

The body. The world. What is it for?
