Pushcart Prize Nominee

Bill Baynes

matters of importance

tingles in fingers and toes

thin black and blue skin

the care of the feet

the receptionist’s name


placement of hairbrushes

the route to the toilet

annual driving exams

the esteem of felines


and that thing old men do

saving scraps of tissue

folded smooth and ready

at the drip of a nose
