A Lady Doesn’t Sweat She...Perspires! - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

A bead if sweat
trickled down my neck

slipped between
my shoulder blades

slipped under
my bra

& tickled
between the cheeks of my buttocks.

I got so wet!

And I thought:

“Oh, God...
just let him kiss me again! ”

    Ha ha I like the idea of you in drag! Just love this...what a great description of a kiss...from the woman's point of view. You are the only man I know who writes the way a woman writes and sees the world from the perspective of being female. This could have been me...damn...I wish I wrote it. All the times I felt this and then to be beaten to it by a...guy! God damn! You must have got this straight from the horse's mouth 'cos this sure rings true for me and rings my bell. Just being reading Humbergirl's beautiful poem about a kiss(which is just delicious) and you remind me of her...but then is a woman. You must have been listening when your girlfriend talked! Captures the moment...and the thoughts...and the kiss...perfectly. Not bad for a guy!

    I thought you were in drag here but then I realised you had adopted the female persona...ya must have got inside information from your girlfriend! It's a good honest representation of what it is like to kiss a guy you really want and make no sweat about it. The one detail of following this one dropp is funny and lovely. Might I take umbrage with the title and say that a lady neither sweats or pespires but...glows! You tell it like it is. This poem kisses me again and again trickels down the inside of my mind. When I read it...I glow!
