Work for me

an ideal working relationship

with no overtime

conducive to the lifestyle

how could that possibly be done

our lives already do it

knowing the texture

curious, cede to touch

that’s the feeling when

you saw his calloused palms

like thomas had doubts

those hands didn’t exist

until you felt their hardness

they weren’t real until

you stuck your finger deep into the wound

and realised you knew nothing

the only things hardened here are their hands

perfect sense to be skeptical

of the soft ones you carry

you’ll love it here

some hand cream might help

start off each day slowly

coffee to get the blood flowing

then if you’ll please open the piano

run those rugged fingers gently over the keys
