Tips and Toes

I'm way too old for neon green.
I did it on a dare.
But now that glow is on my nails, I flaunt them everywhere.

My toes are teal for contrast.
They're better off that way.
Coordination's not for me, I like the disarray.

Don't judge me by my grey hair or the wrinkles on my face.
My heart is young.   I'll have some fun.
My digits state my case.

Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for hosting this annual challenge.
