A day colder than earlier thought

Random lines from my bookshelf:

On a good day two hands aren’t enough
to feel the world
says Hector—my friend
who more than once has beat another man
until both arms–fatigued–limp
two numb slabs of meat
flung from his torso

—Patrick Rosal, “A Good Day,” Uprock Headspin Scramble and Dive
