My fingers quiver electric to make an inappropriate gesture in the hospital waiting room.

Tiny demonic chymicals rampage up and down the length of my arms
gnawing on relays and muscle mass.

These idle hands want to play, pull at the air like a deranged mage
casting improbable thoughtforms into the warm and musty room
but I stop myself just in time and instead fiddle nervously with my phone.
