The first sock monkey I ever made…

Comment 1 Standard

Look at my skin.  It wasn’t born from a clean, new sock.  No way.  This is a sock that has been used.  Look at my mouth.  My mouth sheathed a real heel.  A man’s heel.  It rammed against the end of a steel-toed boot.  That makes a monkey tough.  Very tough.  There’s human blood in my mouth.  Blister blood. And foot sweat.  I taste foot sweat all the time.  Lumberjack foot sweat.  I’m worn.  I’ve been around.  My mouth has walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire. Bad monkey.
