Hands

Day 264 prompt: Hands

they emerge
plump and pink
from the
veil of white bubbles
that whisper over
her dinner dishes

still for half a second
then two rapid twitches
scatter dripples
across the bubble veil

after maneuvering
an absorbent train
of damp cotton
across the marble
they dab away
the remaining
moisture

now drier and paler
but just as strong
and nimble
they curve
over planks
of black and white
prepared to
serve and savor
Wagner’s march
