hands

hands move forward and back
into the air, in a fine symmetry
one after other, when in parade
they beat lots of air in between
when not swatting flies, in air.

in pockets they warm bodies in fear
when they are not cold in the palms
hands help bodies in their dire crisis
by the sweat of  their oozing palms.
why  are they lying limp on a chest?
