NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 9 – The Boxing Girl

Standard

And then our hands
washed themselves
lay themselves
on our laps
have slept
run by time
saved themselves
ones on the others
a safe for actions.

If I can’t hold you,
curl your fingers of light,
make a fist,
stay.

[Original Italian by Chandra Livia Candiani (1952-), ‘E poi le mani’.]
