My friend Kim left this in a comment on the picture of Toby’s feet last week and it is just delightful. And yes, I do think “peach feet” now when I see Toby’s toes.


Peaches–Six in a Tin Bowl, Sarajevo
Sandra Cisneros
If peaches had arms
surely they would hold one another
in their peach sleep.
And if peaches had feet
it is sure they would
nudge one another
with their soft peachy feet.
And if peaches could
they would sleep
with their dimpled head
on the other’s
each to each.
Like you and me.
And sleep and sleep.
