Your Hand

Place yourself in front of a view 
that has aided a past recovery. 
Raise your hand to eye level, 
and turn it over like a word repeated, 
until the image splits from meaning.
See your hand as something else,
until the only thing you can do is marvel
at its sheer mechanical magnificence. 

Consider the odds -
evolved and yet evolving -  
as you watch it work.
