RWB Workshop Poem of the Week – December 19

December 20, 2017

Poem of the Week 12/19/17

John Barrale

Hands

I look down at them
play God—

reduce the world’s species to two

a left
&
a right,

my first act of non-creation
to downsize,
deconstruct,

decree
that there be

no beasts, no people,

no flowers,
no clouds

just fingers
and thumbs—

because even God
needs angels,

& maybe,
tomorrow,

when time
is scheduled to begin

I’ll let one
open the day
like a curtain.
