These Hands

These hands, that are very
Much like your hands are
Folded like neat sheets of
That paisley wallpaper that
Reminds you of your
Grandparent’s house and
They are kept tucked in
Beneath teak and moss to
Cover their woody veins and
These hands, that are very
Much like your hands are
Terrified that someday, soon, you
Will know that they are calling and
These hands shrug off their
Doubt and try to erase their
Lines because they are
Afraid that they already know a little
Too much.
