I'd give you a finger
honestly, or a kidney
if you truly needed one.

I'm thinking about donating
that same kidney to a stranger
so don't feel too singled out.

The finger I'd give you
just because you asked.
But you would never ask

me to rid myself of anything--
least of all myself--this is
the deceptive part of you

worthy of so much imagined
amputation. I give without
request. (Here comes the finger.)
