Knuckle Down He Said

if you want to go far
like I should know how
without asking
without being shown.

I kept my knuckles down
never waved hello
never hugged
never reached into the darkness
for the strawberry moon.

I felt your difference
you lived knuckles up
your hands a dancing landscape
wearing a ring the colour of heaven
that pulled me into your orbit.
