ceramics

toughened as they
are by the rough
ways i use them,

my fingertips
still manage
a certain sensitivity

to variations
in texture, thickness,
flexibility

it takes a
little more patience
and attention

but the callouses
do not hinder
gentleness

and the clay is
surprisingly soft,
warm, receptive
