with his heart of gold,

the alarm goes off

we trade predictions

we trade predictions
like small kisses – lightly,
ever so
lightly, nothing
too official,
anything but that

when you hold me, our

when you hold me, our
hearts are stacked
not so neatly
so that there is room
to lodge sweet
nothings
,
wedge wet
kisses

and then again, there are

and then again, there are
kisses that alight on
the last defense between
you and the unknown,
perched quietly on the
fence, waiting for a
stirring that signals
an invitation. you can
look out the window
every morning all
season long, and it
will still be at the
same spot, preening

there are kisses you

there are kisses you
can spread on
toast, dip into warm
milk, sprinkle over
apples, bake for
an eternity, and everything
will still come out just right

we are responding to

we are responding to
these internal attachments
by looking outward,
inspecting our bodies for
peripheral snaps, buttons,
hooks, velcro – forced
to come together on
a solution, we cannot
help but sneak in
a few errant kisses

at fifteen thousand

at fifteen thousand
rpm, our love separates
into identifiable phases.
starting with the heaviest
memories, we can
extract one or two
samples to be
processed for that
magical unknown.
it is a shame
that what remains
afloat, and likely to be
discarded, are several
years of aimless kisses

in theory, we know

in theory, we know
when to
stop.
in practice,
temptation gives
little kisses,
manufactured for
lingering
sweetness,
perfected by
our sometimes
self-sabotaging
neuro-wiring

three-hundred-

three-hundred-
and-sixty-five
days, we drift
in and out of
fixed kisses,
a steady
routine –

at the threshold,
before bedtime,
on birthdays,
under the
mistletoe, and
still, in
gratitude –

but at closer
inspection,
we do not
recognize each
other in each other,
and we have
stopped trying
