Talon Salon

The distal free edge

echoing the light

it reaches for, 

its lateral nail fold

shadowing the body

darkening an eponychium

covered now and tastefully:

lacquered; over-decorated;

wrapped and bound to drown,

decay as feet wound

once; a symbol of defeat;

nailing femininity is tapping 

new economies’

keys.
