Sometimes It's Better-When The Lips Are Chapped


I’ve been thinking
Of
Her panting.

While an index and thumb
Pinch her protruding hip bones.

The ones I kissed
As the television
Displayed static.
We were in-love
Couldn’t
Notice a shallow noise.

I’ve been thinking
I want her to stop panting
And catch her breath.

Vocalize promises to me.

Example:
Promise it will be a touch on the lip
Using a fingernail
instead of a fingerprint.

Did I mention we still talk?

It’s
Yes or no.

We used to share other words.
But my memories
Have indulged in reality.

Truth is
My memories are all lies.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
