first-aid sock

last sunday,
ned fell in the backyard 
and banged up his knee.
he had bruises and scratches.
it hurt.

at first, he covered it with bandaids,
which didn't work well on such a bendy part.
the adhesive removal was not pleasant.

he and i dug through our first aid supplies
looking for something that would work.

i found the cotton socks that had served
it was sort of a lightbulb moment.

we cut the ribbed top from the sock bottom.

it was the perfect 
stretchy soft cushiony support
for his sore knee.

to do:
buy a pair of socks for the first aid kit.
