hand-off to fingers

everywhere I look I see fingers
fingers typing
fingers tapping
fingers on triggers
fingers pointing
fingers luring

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
