the cracks in my hand
covered in sand
water flowed over them
toward the top of the banks
around the bend past your place
inside
you’re hands were dry
splinters hiding
beneath their surface
where blisters appeared
soothed only by the moisture
of your hot black tea
you needed the fireplace
you didn’t want me
