Reach

Hands reach to grasp
tissue paper tatters
floating on wispy wind spirals,
scattering every which way
in a wind that seems to
cool the sun itself.

Hands reach towards
tissue paper tatters
fluttering in defiance of gravity,
settling in random places
reminders of trust torn from
boxes packed for fragilities.

Hands reach for safety
tissue paper tatters
presenting cold evidences,
harnessing needs for recourse
reality steps into view as
the search for recompense begins.

Hands reach to grasp
tissue paper tatters
floating on wispy wind spirals,
scattering every which way
in a wind created by interactions
devalued by selfishness.
