Poetry Day…….This Short Life

This Short Life

I’ll hold your face

and teach you how to kiss 

again.

Not those drive-by pecks

that you give your grandmother.

No apple-bob

avoidance of something deep

and wet.

I’m talking 

two hands wound through hair

get to work

close your eyes

let your mouth go soft

so it can have more surface

to feel what’s going on

Tasting deeply of the

sweet wet cave-

a really mean it

kind of

last chance

show you how i feel

kissing.

There’s no time for less.

You need to get this

right now-

before there is no more

feeling it

in this short life.
