my thumb is a tree


my thumb is a tree

it has 5 little limbs

with birds nesting their

lovely eggs

yes, my thumb is a tree

made out of wood,

soft skin

it over shadows my palm

my nails

and it grows, it grows

kneeling high

as the leafs are open

and colored themselves pink

shaping my thumb into a heart shape


yet i called it a heart shape thumb tree……
