The Hands of Time

Look at My Hands--
The Strong Fingers Before
with Adept Abilities
Holding a Handstand
on Two Universes of Parallel Bars--
(My Hands -- Look at Them Then!)
Defying Gravity and Time
(at the time)
Floating above the Bars!!

See them Then, Not Now!

--See them Now
without dry crevices
...before Time dried
the cracks--

Wonder instead at the Hand
Holding First-Love's
First Soft Hand.

Not the Time-parched-skin--

See the Youth beneath
the Wrinkled Wisdom
When once
I was Young
Yearning and Learning
...and Earning

My Dry Parched Hands.
