Hand In Hand

I survived
and write it down
to forget it

I don't have to remember
what I can read over, but I have to
look for the words

that hide, anxious words
as if my pen is the knife
under the highway past our house

put out of nowhere on my throat
The evening had already fallen
Nervously he cried for money

a beginner, his plan
could be smoothened with calmness
my fear sabotaged

by my husband: 'We don't have money
what use are tea and caramel fudges? '
'I have money! In my bag'

'Give, give! ' My husband
quietly takes my purse
and opens it upside down

The coins fall
The boy bends down
Hand in hand we run
