Poco - Liver Spots

A hand rests on edges of decay
tendons tight, harp-strings and salmon bones
I held those hands in younger days.
A hand rests on edges of decay
some lines were formed before my stay
when watched they cupped porcelain and stone.
A hand rests; on edges of decay
tendons—tight harp-strings and salmon bones.

The End
