Wrist: A tremulous map of veins
on which to imprint my anger; a
catching-place for mothers to
seize and yank; a slender hook
on which to hang bangles; an area
one looks to discern the hour;
a river of platelets and plasma.
Hand: The master of grasping and
twisting; page-turner; an artist of
all mediums; bearer of startling
pleasure and stinging pain; a tool
for greeting acquaintances; a
hiding place for precious stones
and feathers; something to hold.
