Happy Halloween.

The Spare Pair of Feet


I keep them in the closet

my spare pare of feet

side by side among my shoes

together nice and neat.


If an accident should happen

if I should lose a toe

I have ten more to choose from

all waiting in a row.


And if I ever need an eye

an earlobe or a heart

a tonsil or an eyelash

or any other part—

I keep a good supply on hand

I keep them just in case.

There isn’t any part of me

that I cannot replace.


So if I’m ever swallowed whole

or buried in concrete

my friends can build a whole new me—

starting with my feet.
