Light cream, with tunnels of life running through it.
Unique patterns of one’s self, telling everything, but some
times not enough, your fingerprint is your identity.
Scarred, weathered and hard from a timeless life.
Where it runs the world, pushes the buttons, stirs the food,
steals the money, cups for water,
that’s what the hand does.
It pulls the trigger.
Lifts the baby from the womb…to start
the cycle…of another hand.
To run the world.
And write the words
