shaking hands

shaking hands

all these faces so new confess a terror desperate to attribute itself to impotence of mind and mystery of writing hand.

yawning beneath a tightly gripped coffee cup i prayed the shaking would be imperceptible and that the rocking would not start without my explicit permission as it had before.

keeping hands busy in a roomful of people without making yourself look like a fidgety two-year old is a challenge fraught with wins and losses, but the wins are the sugar that makes the coffee less bitter and the faces easier to read.
