Tai chi at Fall River Guard Station (for Susan)

Finger, finger, finger, finger
around again
first the little one
then the one the ring goes on
then the center one, most dangerous
last of all the pointer and then
start backward, gently, gently,
swimming softly through imaginary Cool Whip
a digit at a time.
A sting! A slap! Red. A wipe.
Foamy pink. Mosquitoes, you must know
this is a martial art
