Body Language

“Look at your hand.”

My unexpressive, empty palm stares back at me, his voice speaking softly to me on the other end of the call.

“Put down your middle and ring fingers… I hope you understand what I’m trying to say.”

And in that moment, my heart sank at the deepest meaning my hand could possibly express, coming from a love I miss across the country.
