everywhere I look I see fingers
fingers on triggers
when fingers count, hands are discounted
can you give a hand? …given the finger
the value of the opposable thumb traded for the oppressive fingers
where are the hands to hold me?
the fists to defend me?
hands applauding authenticity?
the fists raised in solidarity?
hands don’t multitask, hands don’t micromanage
after you shake them, put them away
no time for free time, hands down no question
