His and Hers

by Soibam Haripriya 

A bigger face
a bigger strap
a smaller face
a smaller strap
for thick muscular hands for thin slender arms
They said its
big things for man
small things for woman
Titan had wrapped them up
with velvety cloth
perfect wedding gifts
His and Hers

A bigger hand
A harder slap
leaving bluish purple marks
you get accustomed to

Slender hands
to be wrung about helplessly to
a burn here, a cut there as
one her kind
should get accustomed to.

And all these came
packed in a golden box with velvet inside
the sturdy-ness of his, the softness of hers
wrapped in skin and bones Perfect gifts
for Hu-man-kind
