there are delicacies in you

"there are delicacies in you
like the hearts of watches
there are wheels that turn
on the tips of rubies
& tiny intricate locks

i need your help
to contrive keys
there is so little time
even for the finest
of watches"

this is wonderfully precious, how this is compared, the finest delicacies of watches with finest hidden or not feelings, sentiments, unseen thoughts... diligence is needed for watches and humans...
