Dignity of Manual Labor

Dignity of Manual Labor
by Lori Maria Walton

These, my manual extensions
   designed for dexterity
  give, to you, my treasure

These, you take from me
   denigrating my identity,
No acknowledgement of difference
  only indifference and emptiness

Extend the strand you hold,
  with my warmth
I will wrap and preserve
   your weakness

Let me walk tall, among 
   your books, and give to you
the wisdom of my hands
