The Cave of Hands

Cave of Hnads

The Cave of Hands

Those hands
           on the cave wall
in Santa Cruz
           Argentina
waving to us
           from 9000 years ago

Silhouettes created
           by blowing paint
through bone-made pipes
           : and such warmth
in these gestures
           as if to say
we’re here and in our art
           we salute you
our friends
           to come
