Different, But Not Less

And now my hands are breaking.
Fitting that they should
Each little finger looking a different way,
bending awkwardly toward a
Future …

Of different, but not less.

~ Auburn McCanta

This just to mention that my little fingers are each beginning to bend in ways I never expected — the right hand in what is medically called, Dupuytren’s Contracture … the left hand beset with simple Arthritis. Like many other parts of my body, my hands are turning different from their former shape … but they are not less. No. They will never be less.
