In extremis

Hands and feet,
mere counters in the game of appendages.
Sometimes I long
for the frugality
of a boa constrictor
an earthworm or nematode,
but then my brain tides run counter,
contrariwise, contra:
I am widderthoughted.
My paramour could be a hexapod,
octopod (eg, spider), decapod (a crab, perhaps)
centipede, millipede.

Is there anything handier
or more surefooted than that?
