Hands in the Air: a Labor Day poem

Your hands pick
My family's vegetables
Your hands weld
My building's rafters
Your hands paint
The offices on the second floor
Your hands cook
For the tourists
Your hands turn
Wood into guitars

We've met
And we haven't met

You brung our city
One day we'll dance

-John Lamb
