As Seahorse

Gentle men washing their snouts

 

Gentle women scrubbing your calluses

 

Milking your anxiety

 

As forgiving as a trip over feet too large

 

As if one day our world that we have claimed will celebrate love in every way

 

The colors that blind will bleed from theirs pores and ducts

 

As children observing

As fathers coughing

As teachers pleasing grooved fingertips, pruned under water

Touch me as soft

 

As gentle as men

 

As gentle as women
