The devourer of toes

shoes won’t stop it
boots won’t slow it down
you shouldn’t have
uttered the invocation
voiced the incantation
without protection
circle of fungus
ring of sludge
whatever it takes
you eschewed it
now it chews you

don’t compound the error
by calling its sibling to rein it in
don’t summon
the biter of ankles
