Kiss (poem and painting)


watercolour and lipstick on paper

what’s in a kiss?

a certain kind of bliss

the answer to a wish

a reason to exist

that’s all in a kiss

there’s more to a kiss

things we usually miss

kinaesthetically intensely sexually sensual

kaleidoscopically insanely stupendously splintered

connection instigating saturnalian sensation

calm inspiring sublime serenity

things in a kiss we usually miss

that’s what makes much more to a kiss
