I would like to write a poem about your hands
Twisted and flawed, the way I like
I only want to be your manicurist
To celebrate every scar and every vein
To stare at every wrinkle in your palms
and be your fortuneteller
I want your flawed hands on every inch of my skin
I shall make every curve of my body their home.
