lament of the other finger

sometimes i wonder
has anyone ever pondered
the unique agony that is that other finger’s?
the one that no one names,
no one uses.
the nameless one,
the useless one.

there is the thumbs-up of good luck,
the index of unity,
the overuse of the middle finger–
-and even the conjoined v of victory-
and the all unique pinkie.
but that other finger…

it shall have to await its glory,
as the receptacle of its crown of thorns-
of servitude and tradition,
if ever, if at all.
