Shake

Uncategorized

Hands stuck like wax sticks,
deformed by work weeks,
twisted and frozen after heating,
unable to play piano or cut fruit,
holding the string, afraid of the burns
from the match and the shaking
formed in the bone.
Tethered flesh is fashionable
but it can’t help tremors,
his bodily earthquake.
Let it burn. Don’t let him melt.
