comfort vs. symbolism

i’ve found
that my ring
(the one my mother got me
a decade ago
and a few months ago
asked whether it was from a boyfriend)
seems to feel better
on my left ring finger
better than my right
but only

my brain
itches at the
thought of a slim
precious metal chainlink
sitting symbolically
on the third finger
of my left hand

does my body know
something i don't?

or is it simply not quite
socialized as my mind
as to believe in the power
of a ring on a certain finger

what if i allowed
my body to do
what feels right

let what the world
think what it will
