Review of "The Problem of Hands" by Louise Mathias

"The Problem of Hands" by Louise Mathias was offered by's Poem-A-Day on November 20, 2013.  A link to the poem, including the poet's notes, may be found here:

The theme of the poem is the nervous energy or sexual tension surrounding suddenly finding oneself close to someone attractive.  The poem consists of fifteen lines arranged in irregular stanzas which, when read aloud, may simulate the catching of breath that might occur in such a situation.
