out of my shell

A Helping Hand

My left hand:

has been held


keeps an onion still while I slice it

lifts the kettle

is sometimes stained with pink eczema

presses three fingers to my lips

twists my hair

props my head up when I am tired

scratches backs


folds laundry, smoothing creases

grips a book

changes gears

has short nails

offers you a gift

waves to you

What does your left hand do?
