any violinist
could be a neurosurgeon—

both possess a certain
dexterity of hand,
a delicacy with
(and love for) their
instruments,

a joy in manipulating them
to create form
and beauty.

both can calm nerves,
break hearts
with a swift and decided
twitch of a finger.

The idea at the core of the poem isn't weighed down by any unnecessary words, so that it has maximum impact, you've used stanzas and line breaks to reinforce this effect so that all in all the effect is that the reader can receive the heart of the poem as a single whole, transmitted effortlessly from the page to the mind. This really allows a poem to have a life beyond the words it's built from.

Does that make sense? I'm not sure if I'm explaining it well, or over-explaining it.
