Creative Writing

(Devon Nitz | The Oswegonian)

Trying to move

to pick up

to grab hold.

 

Printed

unique to each

individual.

 

Swirls this way

looped around

seen up close

and studied.

 

From there,

indented at knuckles

bend and wiggle

cross hatched down

to the palm.

 

Long life,

great wealth

reading lines

and ones

in between.

Washed under soft,

bitten down nails,

which occasionally

get dirty from

who knows.

 

Time takes its toll.

Crinkles of age,

the skin detracts

slowly

 

from pink

fresh to

gray mush.

 

Telling many

stories that

move

pick up

 

grab hold,

finger laced

with the hand

that swings by.
