Poem 8: Questions

When is a kiss not a kiss?

a slapping together of lips

an infestation of tongues

What is a kiss?

dance of the eyelashes

a covered smile

tips of hands meeting, a second

When does not a kiss become a kiss?

When does love not become love?

a gasp of a letter

the smell of a single yellow petal

a whistled ditty becoming a symphony of their voice.
