The hand was frozen;

reaching, stretching, aching,

trapped in the space between

one minute and the next.

Caught in that half-breath

not past, but not quite present yet.

Suspended in limbo,

silent as death.

The frozen hand was not the only

death that day.

A cracked and broken face

also told its last tale.

No winding up,

no battery power,

could reanimate this lost life.

Death is not easily denied.
