Have my hands

I don’t need them
anymore

for heat
or homemaking
or writing

I’m done with clinging
to this boat
so I let go

and sink
into the dark

all the way down

dictating my screed
to the water

as one by one
the fingers you severed
separate
and float away

warm-blooded
still

into their own
selfless
orbits.
