Five Easy Peices

His hands were working hands

Cuts and bruises

They were not aesthetically pleasing

But pleasing to touch


The hands were large

They short stubby fingernails

Long fingers

Like ET


His hands were working

Working on a broke down swather on a farm

He wants to be done with it

Like nothing was going right


I wonder what happened

Maybe clipped a rock

Maybe the hay was too wet

Maybe he was running it too hard
