For Valentine's Day, a romantic poem: 2 hands

2 hands

two hands warm together

after a fine guitarist’s set;
hidden music
through the spheres

out in the audience
hidden in the middle, two arms
under a table with two full glasses

two hands commune
as if the one

and only touching
on earth,
before the fall

for an hour and a half

embodied, that
warm embrace of their fingers
and palms

close slow dancing

ever and ever

no palming
but sheer magic
one body, one spirit
