Hand Signals for Lovers
Look at them as they were; each understands
the otherís needs. No need to say very much.
Most communication is by touch:
the loving eloquence of holding hands.
Of course, itís very different today.
Itís been a long time since they even kissed.
Each of them feels the other in the way,
uncompromising as a tight-clenched fist.
If you have any thoughts on this poem, David Whippman
