Long piano fingers joined
on round, cream-coffee
palms, thin rings of brown circulate my
fingers. Lines stretch across the
whiteness of palms, fortune
and hardships all knitted into
soft, cream skin. Young wrinkles found
slightly past thumb, faint to become
defined through time. They
have wiped the tears from
reddened cheeks and felt the
broom's splintered wooden
handle. Half-grown. So many more
experiences and ruts to overcome.
