Counting Toes

back in high school
she had a good friend
who kept bugging her
to join the environmental club.

he used to slip her little
notes in latin class
that said things like
"environmental club. environmental club.
yes, yes, yes."

of course,
he would also tell her things like
"just count your toes, man.
count 'em."

she never really knew
what that meant
and she wondered if
she ran about nature barefoot
if she'd eventually figure it out.
