I’m not a bad person

Life insurance covers the event of death, but what insures me
in the event of life? So far, I keep my hands above the table,
even though most of the time I have no idea what to do with them.
But with a little effort, I can contain their primal truth and return
a gentle gesture. Except it’s all for the sake of appearances.
After all, we, the civilised, fill our prescriptions so discreetly
that the only suspicion that something is up comes from holding
the hair back.
