Middle-aged First Kiss


Fireworks
On vermillion flaps
Like a supernova
On a ruby red skyline
As my mouth grafts a kiss
On your glutinous lips

Yet I stutter for a second
Like a moth to a flame
Knowing deep down
That your sensuous lips
Will be my needle
To your surfeit of cocaine

And I am the alkaloid junkee
Practicing my free will
Needing your liberating tremor
That galvanizes every modicum
Of my uncharted wilderness
As tsunamis of ecstasy
Undulate to every corner
Of my corporeal seabed

A melange
Of euphoria and ecstasy
From a spike of your aromatics
Your silken cover
That bewitches my world
As I taste your nectar
From the ledge of your lips

A magical foray
A baptism to a mystical gender
Blessed by your salivating treacle
And the impression of your lip gloss
As I surrender like a slave
To your succulent universe

A first kiss
Memorable and addictive
As my tactile virginity immolates
To the tinder of your lips

Oh the beauty
Of the first time
For the cradle of innocence
Is free of labels of age
As a middle-aged man
Blushes like a teenager
Kissing nubile lips

A new beginning
In the road less traveled
When love finally beckoned
In the twilight of youth

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
