River & the Doctor + Bowties
"I need a strip of cloth, about a foot long. Anything will do. Never mind. — River, take one end of this, wrap it around your hand, and hold it out to me.”
The angles of your wrists
preserve a certain mystery,
unknown by any lips
or written down in history.
To measure their degree
would solve the oldest questions -
providence and alchemy
answered in your gestures.
But god and gold will never rival
the way your fingers curl.
They hold my breath’s arrival
like a rare and undiscovered pearl.
House of Leaves, Mark Z. Danielewski
