the most important conversations
you'll ever have is with your fingers
when they nervously grace her for the first time during dinner
the thrill of rising good bumps on her breast
while unbottoning her shirt
on the days you are angry,
they'll ball into fists
and she'll cry,
but as they shake
for forgiveness
she'll see what
apologies look like
and when one of you is dying
in a hospital bed at 65,
your hands'll grip hers
to say things words
can't describe
