gould variations

hands of a newborn
press upon my lips
a thousand gasps and giggles
over a thousand and one years
keys of the piano
dance a thousand raindrops
before i knew rain
despite a thousand and one showers
male murmurs and a tuff of soft hair
brush over the smooth polish
coax out a thousand rivers that push through
this only kiss
 and in that, we are the professionals
