All those hands

you don’t know
what those hands
are capable of

those hands have
caressed and slapped
lovers on lazy afternoons

those hands have
swiped cards at boutiques
to buy organic moisturisers

those hands have
assembled designer furniture
ordered in from overseas

you don’t know
what those hands
are capable of

anything you’ve ever got
on those hands
could be cleaned off

and that organic moisturiser
you buy from the boutique
never seems to run out

I suppose it’s a good thing
to have hands
that clean and soft

to not need to know
what those hands
are capable of

to never wonder
how many hands it takes
to keep yours that way
