Our Bianca’s Hand
by Marge Simon

Our Bianca,
a monster, a moron,
unlikely choice for symbiont,
yet she meets our needs.
In time, she grows too old
to serve us properly.
We select a young man
to assist our plans.
He’s strong, but lacking wits,
and his passion grows
as we reveal our beauty.
He bends easily to our will,
and grasps us tenderly
when our Bianca dies.
At the house of the insane
he finds another like her
with no volition of its own.
He removes the useless things
that dangle from its wrists,
applies a clump of spider webs
to staunch the flow of life.
Afterward, he wipes the blade
and places it beside the bed.
We join again to human arms,
signal him when it is done,
with delicate caresses
and promises of love.

    Spooky, creepy and intriguing.

  2. Marge Simon says:

    It should be “Our Bianca’s Hands” plural — 🙂 And with a nod to Theodore Sturgeon’s short story, “Bianca’s Hands” — it’s incredible, and ten thousand times better than my poem here. 🙂

    Great poem!
