Peg Feed

marked in symmetry
the ungloved reach of her
pawing the air
parting its molecular cool
until soft fingers - ringless
relieved in bone
each cloud punctured knuckle
savouring empty
the equality of digits
separating inch by inch
the light of chance
framed in chiaroscuro
fitting - the final wave
of anorexic sorrow
as silence
masking palm
permits one final
absolute commitment
to denial
