“Tell it to the…” poems

4/24/14
Tell it to the Hand
Talk to the hand
Listen
What does it have to say?

does it run along the page
with sweeping silent spoken word?

does it clamor and fuss?
does it clap in praise?
does it work hard and bear blisters
as evidence of its doing?
does it heal? does it rest on my hip?
does it grasp my neck and knead tired muscles?
does it rest lovingly on your shoulder?
does it attempt to tease sweet sounds from a wooden box?

Talk to the hand.
Listen
What does it have to say?
