"I guess my hand has gone on holiday now"

Hand on Holiday


I woke up this morning my right hand did not

My left hand remembered my right hand forgot

But has remembered something is wrong with me

Making it challenging to write poetry

Being distracted neurologically

Which is about as logical as I get


I keep waiting for it to wake up and yet

Watching this hand write as though it belonged to

Somebody else entirely and not to me

Is a worthwhile if unsettling thing to do

An alternative perspective certainly

Not artifice nor literary device

My numbed flesh-and-blood right hand makes me think twice

To make this estranged member work properly


If I am dreaming and wake up suddenly

Then you will never read these lines because they

Will not be written into the light of day

But if you are reading this my hand is numb

A fascinating foretaste of things to come

At least I finished my seventh book somehow


I guess my hand has gone on holiday now

Dearest Steven
Are you being comical... or are you really 'distracted neurologically'? Well written, no matter how you did it .. whatever hand!!

Good write though comical.

That often happens with my foot. Perhaps it's protesting that I work it too hard?
