Leprous piece of flesh floating in my cup of joe makes it taste just right. Walking in the snow, toes break off in groups of two: five steps and I fall. Lepers have it hard: When they're asked to lend a hand they don't get it back. Leper touches coin. Numismatical faux pas: it is proof no more. Leper hires whore. Penis, fragile, breaks in two. He says, "Keep the tip."
