like a ten-ton weight from the sky
in some crazy cartoon:
my heart fell down –
*thwoomp*
and you caught it
in your hands, with those fingers.
you’ve always been good with your hands.

decades.
cars, trucks, cabin, barn, house
hotel rooms –
near cornfields,
near neon.

bet you still have it
since it fell
since you caught.
bet you’ve kept it safe
in some box that you’ve built
with those hands, with those fingers.
you’ve always been good with your hands.
