Thumbnail Sketch

By John I. Blair

My thumbnail shows
Uneven ridges
Like lava flows
Or a rutted road.

Day by day
They slowly slide
From the quick
Out to the tip.

Does this bode
That I am sick
Or signal damage
To the nail bed?

Peculiar how
My body chose
To hide its messages
In code.

2005 John I. Blair
