These fingers, the ones playing Mozart
right now are the same fingers
that moments ago were inside you.

And while your body does not resemble
a piano at all, these fingers played your soft
insides and you sang in endless surrender.

On your back, eyes filling with the powdery
light that spilled from the bathroom
you were singing. I could not make out
all the words, just as my fingers
now struggle to find Mozart’s key, but
it was your voice, wet with song, for me.
