Hands.
Good for holding-
nice for molding
all the feelings
in the world like clay,
covering the truth
with beaten down words
old and used,
beaten- not new,
falling off
your tongue
continuing
to fall
and
fall.

Beaten-down words,
they just cover the truth
they’re old and used-
beaten- not new
falling,
falling
falling,
into the lines
of a palm.

Hands.
good for holding-
nice for molding
when in need
of time to think
until you finally
speak the truth
“I’m ok.”
Look- no falling
when I’m
standing here
with you.
