In my poetry class last Fall I wrote a somewhat "oh la la" poem which most everyone seemed to find funny coming from sweet ol' me. Cleaning up some papers today, I came across this poem on a stray piece of paper. A poem I never did share in class, I share with you:
I want to kiss you just to know what it feels like.
Two free spirits united.
Speak your words into my mouth so I might roll them around on my tongue.
Save your best lines and brand them on my lips so I might savor them slowly.
Leave trails on my flesh with your fingertips,
top to bottom reminiscent of Chinese characters on rice paper.
Just once might be enough.
