My Hands…

Grasped thumbs
Cupped breasts
Rattled shakes
Played with dolls
Bounced balls
Jumped rope
Reached for love
Clung to sun
Prayed to gods
Covered ears
Washed dishes
Pumped iron
Raced cars
Fingered bass
Aced tests
Painted graffiti
Cracked pencils
Tore letters
Built dreams
Broke windows
Flicked lighters
Massaged backs
Rocked venues
Tugged leashes
Clapped applause
Squeezed necks
Punched clocks
Wrapped gifts
Bagged peaks
Held rain
Drew water
Poured beers
Twisted caps
Spun bottles
Struck teeth
Rolled joints
Tilted shots
Carried caskets
Danced on stage
Hugged trees
Blazed trails
Sculpted cairns
Cut wrists
Folded napkins
Hit walls
Painted interiors
Sketched pads
Pleaded mercy
Caressed steel
Pulled triggers
Pet cats
Smote bugs
Pointed down
Swiped left
Blurred genders
Changed names
Stayed the course
Slipped on dresses
Buttoned shirts
Ripped out knees
Zipped up tents
Healed birds
Tickled feet
Melted hearts
Shoveled graves
Closed wounds
Opened books
Locked doors
Clasped ties
Slapped bags
Hitched rides
Played games
Texted hookups
Waved for help
Stoked fires
Rolled dice
Typed chapters
Smashed drums
Pinched butts
Picked berries
Fed mouths
Pushed carts
Yanked weeds
Clutched ropes
Wrote a poem.
