Zara Tak


It looks like you burnt your hand
Those fingers are bent in a broken way
sharply into the palm, the thumb out stretching strangely limp.
I get maggots in my mind eating at the bandages, spitting up acidic saliva that burns each thread like embers on the skin
and I find myself recoiling like a handgun, a spring loaded ignition in a black chrome case.
(I hate thinking about it.)
Those fingers nub-
naked bone carved into finger tips on a stretching hand!
Lye scrapes the thinly-skinned place I was told to bare toward a hot door during a fire drill.
Lye curdles there and adrenaline cuts my line of sight into a sunsetting horizon
where I lay hand-over-hand coddling the lump of scar under my outer palm.
The bandaged hand is being held in a bandaged hand
and the eyes let the irises show shame
