Your Hand

Autumn now, and the sheets are cold,

our flesh shivering

at first encountering the night.

The trees turn a gradual gold

in the long-shadowed afternoons,

and suddenly it’s dark at five . . . .

–Excerpt from “Your Hand” in Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective, Chicago 2013).
