forgive the roughness

somehow
my fingertips
maintain
sensitivity
despite the
callouses

attuned to
the texture
of clay
the elasticity
of dough

and
especially
to the
particular
tingle
that comes
when i am
near you

      “Apple-pie order” – I’ve never heard that expression before. I like apple pie.

      I hadn’t considered the form, but I suppose the line breaks presented themselves to me that way for a reason. :)
