The Hand

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Enclosed in protective water tight plastic glove
it incubates, like an embryo of foreign tissue,
becoming less of itself, and more of something else,
disguised as a human hand,
for camouflage only.

Beware when it emerges completed anew,
it will have new attributes,
like a complex computer language,
coded and coding,
an extra-ordinary executive power.
