I discovered my hand yesterday.

Beautiful, its potential.

So I scribbled

and picked at it

until it was a graffitied stump

that followed me all morning.

A stray dog with a jackal's smile -

The kind that makes you peek.

I don't have any food for it

and by the time

I bought some rings to make

it look appealing,

the hand had already started

to dissolve into a haze

and I wished that

I had my stump back.
