What they did was…

They took from the world/the reality of two minds/that they merged into a single mind/made more comprehensive/more real, more indelible, more clear …

Their shared visions/made more complete/in every detail/driven by the joy of shared clarity/whenever thought occurrences/person’s, places or past dreams/entered their lexicon/or the silent entreaties of their minds.

And ………. ! They shared such creative thoughts!

Ideas, certain movements/their dances, their work.

Thick boards they joined together/with rustless screws to make/the boxes that they used/to incubate/the living things/they nurtured into the ground/with their soiled working hands… !!

Her hands:

delicate, the skin waxy thin/tiny machines/their intricate parts visible, lean and long/with male nails, slender, artful fingers, pliable/able to form and reform/space, to twist objects to pour fluids, smooth/card stock and royal paper.

Images flowed from her fingers!

They connected her to/the world of her creations…

along with her … eyes …

While his;

Thick and bony knuckled/blunt ended, numb or at least/not sensitive to tiny screws/and small nails/more suited/to a sledge or maul/large rocks or stone to be placed for stepping …

Or yards and yards/of shovel work, acres/of fallen leaves/gathered in mounds …

Not to mention/the strength and gentle magic/of those hands/able to make/ultimate connection with/the curve of her soft flesh …

So different from the chores/those ‘ham- hocks’ looked like
they were supposed to be doing …
