hands

my hands,
extremities of course, fairly extreme

battlefields
paper cuts and gouges and
little crescents of recent stresses

scrapes and peeling and
freckles just for balance
pale down
ink stains
yesterday’s news

rings and things
owls and stars and skulls
small votive offerings to my
hands’ future ploys

so much yet to do
