A drop of blue

frosting
at the corner
of your mouth. Is this the
excuse I’m longing for to touch
your lips?

Before/After

Before
our shy mouths meet; wall
flowers being awkwardly
introduced by friends.

After
wrenching some covers
away to wrap over me;
geez, you’re a bed hog.

Modern Love

Will you be my Valentine?
Gotta take this call; I’ll be back in a minute.
For each one of your kisses, I’ll pay two of mine.
Will you please be my Valentine?
Will you give me your heart and all the love in it?
Sure. Check Google Calendar. Pick a date. We’ll begin it.
So, you will be my Valentine.
Gotta take this call; I’ll be back in a minute.

Pulse

Put your hand here in mine.
No, give me your wrist.
Maybe if I feel your pulse, I’ll be reassured
We’re both still human and still here;
Neither of us was translated during that kiss,
Transported to another plane.

Put your lips right there
Where my neck and shoulder meet.
Maybe another kiss will slow the thrumming
Of the blood beneath my skin,
Dissipate some of its heat.
Or maybe neither of us will care.

Ringing Out The Old (Hopefully)

I can’t believe I’ll be ringing in 2010 like this;
Without so much as a male Yorkie to kiss.
Each January 2nd, I swear I’ll come up with a better plan.
Maybe by the next time
All the stars will align
And I’ll spend New Year’s Eve with a man.

Ripping The Band-Aid Off, All At Once

The simple truth, Bisou? This is the end.
It seems we are not soulmates after all.
If this were the perfect romance, as you say,
Shouldn’t there be room in your day for me?
For us? Yet here I am alone.
It’s easy to say if we’d met at a
Different time things would flow as smooth as glass.
But if you meet someone perfect for you
and the timing’s off they weren’t perfect, right?
Maybe I should have been more demanding.
Maybe you’d prefer someone with no needs.
Whoever you’re looking for it’s clearly
Not me so I can’t care less who it is.
Still I’ll always treasure the special times:
The first time I saw you across the room;
First time we stayed up talking through the night;
The first time we kissed tentatively then
Later when we really got it right;
The last night we spent in each other’s arms
And U.S. tanks rolled in to free Baghdad.

Tumble

Sitting on an inner tube at the top of the hill,
Shivering from- cold? adrenaline? anticipation?- till you
Slipped your arms around me, pulling me
Snugly against your warm body. Holding tight, I leaned back… back. In
Slow motion we started our descent, but you expertly
Steered us toward the welcoming sofa, your lips moving against mine-
Softly at first- while my heart swooped and careered.
Suddenly, though by nature a flightless bird, I am free and
Soaring above the surface of the frozen lake. Coming to earth at last with a
Slight bump, I am exhilarated, breathless, eager to return to the
Summit.
