Hands

It’s true that we know the backs of our hands
and our knowledge improves with time
so that, in old age, when we travel a country
different from that we knew in our youth,
when the ridges and hills of the bones
and the engorged rivers of veins and scars
are covered with a membrane transparent,
we know it from long acquaintance.
