Her fingertips on ivory
flickering, racing

A moonshaped comb in her hair
smoothing and shaping

Strong hands crafting clay,
with a single foot on the pedal,
keeping time,

and her lips on my shoulder
knowing exactly where to go.

She says: it's from practice

She means:
it's not about knowing,
it is about doing.
