To a foolish consort from them times


I kissed you in the dark.

Or, let us record our affidavit truthfully:
We messed our kiss that night.

For my lips chanced upon your upturned nostrils &
My tongue picked at caked mucus amidst our startled breathing,
One awkwardness leading to the other, and, We
Propagated illicit seeds in your off-guarded turf.

Weeds!
Dead beat conception!

Now please,
Stop howling baby-milk-bread-and-me lamentations
For we are best striving to wipe away the lingering taste of our mucus kiss –
Disgusting still –
From that sightless night.

Of yestertimes.
