she knows

from IT WAS ALIVE, THOUGH DIFFERENTLY by Hannah Gamble

It had a secret name
which in later years came to mean
I will continue to stand here.

It had a food mouth
and a shrieking mouth.

Popular wisdom indicated
that Its hands could heat stones
and a man could cook
meat on those stones.

That being said,
It had a poverty hand
and a riches hand.

They were
the same hand.
