Pain in right thumb,
Left pinky numb.
Sensations at opposite ends
Become one in nerve endings
Right brain reports lack of feeling,
The left speaks of acute discomfort.
Upright middle finger
Adorned with a golden band,
Formed in an ancient land.
Blink an eye,
the skinny rebel of a finger winks an eye,
standing on glowing hieroglyphs:
“six keys of life” . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Invisible Hand of God signing.
Tissues collect tears, then help to heal.
In time, the wounded, numb as a scar,
Fixes an eye above the Achilles heel.
To be stoic, adrift, with the world afar?
Or be senseless with the senses and really feel,
In-between is an eye above the Achilles heel.
