The Tender Tease

A poem by Beverly Stock.

Fingers extended

Please, move them slower

Then, with gentle touch

Just an inch lower.

Rotate your fingers

Very gently, please

So they barely move

Like a tender tease.

Then, you may have to

get down on your knees

Yes, that’s much better

Angle ensures ease.

Now, turn to rotate

A small smooth motion

Your combination

lock is now open!.
