I will tell you the truth,
which is that:

I don’t want to look at what
you’ve done
and have it look effortless.

Neither do I need for you
to suffer:
to bleed or weep in doing.

Everyone is asking you to make it
look easy, as if
you were born
doing it.

I am asking you to show me
your hands,
roughened, weathered:

Made beautiful by
the work.
