The Opposable Thumb

The opposable thumb comes
in handy for grasping things 

yet some things we grasp are hard
to release without clinging.

That thumb helps not in the least
to turn loose a prejudice, 

a grudge, a bad memory,
a greedy disposition.

When it comes to letting go 
of life, will it be useful? 

Could the thumb opposing be
to blame for our gravest grin?
