Possibility of Hands


I hold your hand
palm up, lace your

fingers with mine,
stretch the palm wide

so my thumbs can press
tight muscles into pools

of softened warmth;


open, your hand could
slap a child’s face,

brush away crumbs,
press the sternum for

resuscitation,
shape the sides of

a porcelain bowl


while fingers curved could
pull a trigger—crosshair

parting the bridge between
eyes, press rounded keys to

blow jazz through
brass, suture severed

flesh with catgut and needle—

within skin
no purpose but life.
