Reach for my hand

reach for my hand
all he has to do is reach for my hand

he crosses his arms across his chest
reserved, aloof, and stiff

i cannot afford this

my grief is unpredictable, chaotic, unnerving
it is not reserved, aloof, or stiff

reach for my hand
all he has to do is reach for my hand

he shifts uncomfortably in his seat
moving his palms to the tops of his knees
reserved, aloof, and stiff
