A foot

The largeness of other people's lives

Your life's significance is
no more important
to them

than their big toe
at most.

That's if you know each other.

Maybe one foot
if you are

Compared with the significance
of our own lives,
other people's lives
are barely a pin prick in that
big toe.

It is impossible to conceive
how little we matter
to others.

Still, I wouldn't want to lose a toe.
