I Wiggle My Toes Lacquered Red

I wiggle my toes
     Lacquered red
Like the fire-engine
I wanted to drive when I was little,
          Preferably with a dalmatian.

I wiggle my toes
     Lacquered red
Like my lipstick,
Or the strawberry margarita
          I've never had in Mexico.

I wiggle my toes
     Lacquered red
Like the tight little fists
Of rosebuds,
          Waiting to open in my garden.

I wiggle my toes
     Lacquered red
Like the red words of love
Locked in my heart
          The red words of love I never say.

(AJ, 5-2007)

I decided to have light green (kinda minty) toe-nails. The colour's name is Witchy...
