Hands

The skin of my hands is roughening up from all the washing we're required to do to defeat the virus. The roughness is most marked over the knuckles of my right hand. It's as if I'd been going round socking people on the jaw.

I look at the backs of my hands. The skin is loose and wrinkled, dry and thin; there's even some spotting. They look like desert landscapes shot from a plane or drone a couple of miles up.
