The need for touch
Touch, when age has chiselled the rhytids
and there is a slight pause before the duty-hardened greeting.
When even a passing winter coat will invoke the longing for
the phantom limb.
When just a clearing of your throat causes a backwards step.
A baby, although adequately fed, will die without touch.
Seen from incubator to orphanage.
