Mutual Reassurance

Saying something worth saying isn't worth saying when a struggle in the dirt leaves a reminder of falling in black crescents under your nails. When raising a middle finger reveals your weakness. When showering does not help, and you must clip away and discard parts of you, flush them from sight, to keep appearances. Unsure if this has helped or merely seems to have helped, you must shake hands, shake a hand and when you are finished shake another, firmly, to reassure yourself while you wait.
