Like embroidery thread

Like embroidery

thread strung

through skin,

blue and flesh

colored lines

wrapped around

hands that have

forgotten how not

to shake.

It bothers me,

and I watch him

put his 2% milk

on the conveyer-belt,

and the onion with

dry wrinkles like

his own. His hands

quiver like he is

nervous, but I

know thats not

the reason.
