A Kiss (5)

Pressed and impressed
Printed and imprinted, by imbued desire
On naked lips, and even on coats of paint
A trans-boundary shipment of tongue
Twisting and uncoiling, supple and ethereal
Axes acutely tilted from the meridian
Closure of eye lids, reflexive, born of compulsion
For the disclosure of carnal knowledge
Instinct-driven and patience-infused

[Hata Bildir]
