PROMPT: One Home

3
As if the spilled spinnings of many beads, lost beneath the tables when the necklace breaks
could be picked, each one, and strung again

There are strangers with the hands of my friends-it's what I notice first
The hands

Which are marked so acutely by the actions of a life, and by manner
And which can be beautiful, slight and clever
Or broad and given to honorable butchery
Or which can be doughy, or dry and calloused
Or fine, long and well manicured

All drawn from the same blueprint
