What Did I Do With My Hand?
I don’t know what I did with my hand.
Is it on my face? Is it in my pocket?
You appeared on the street, as you always
did, just popped up. You took my hand
and I shook it. “Where did you find my
hand?” I asked. “It was placed over your
heart. I thought maybe something happened
and you were praying.” James said.
I gave you my hand and you placed it over
your heart and we parted in peace.
