I've checked the meaning of fold in online dictionaries, it means:
- to bend a piece of paper, cloth etc by laying or pressing one part over another
- to fold something several times so that it makes a small neat shape
- if something such as a piece of furniture folds, or you fold it, you make it smaller or move it to a different position by bending it
- o cover something, especially by wrapping it in material or putting your hand over it 1
but I don't understand what the writer means when she says:
wrist folded absurdly onto itself
Could you explain it to me?
The full text is here:
He grabbed my wrist and my body slipped into the familiar posture, head thrust forward, arm coiled around my lower back, wrist folded absurdly onto itself. Like a dance step, my muscles remembered and raced to get ahead of the music. The air poured from my lungs as I tried to bend deeper, to give my wristbone every possible inch of relief.
