Hand of Knives

Esther’s plump white skin
                       bursts with ice cold hardnesses.

Soft laughter in the gleaming sun
is exiled from her thoughts.
New York and opportunity
are nothing but a hand
of knives when she is left
This hand spreads whispers
         through her dark,
strokes solace on her flesh:
sharp, with finger tips
                             smeared red.
