my grandmother once told me that if i gathered all
the stars in the midnight sky, i could sew them into
a giant blanket of galaxies for lovers to make wishes on.

this is what you do with your hands:
learn the same language my grandmother did all those
years prior to this moment of steam and shake.

come daybreak, we collapse into each other with the
sort of stumbling that my grandmother warned me of.
foolish hands know no boundaries, she would say.

thank God that i am boundless, finding you with probing fingers,
your shoulders a make-shift ladder i climbed to catch
just an inkling of heaven on the tip of my tongue.

if every i love you we whispered
into the gentle morning's ear
brought us closer together,

we would become each other.

folding until we are one:
nothing but a crease of constellations
on my grandmother's blanket.
so i guess you could call this a poem ???
