Muppet lips
never knew how
to properly kiss

a matter of proportion
more than ignorance

You always were much
with your hair down

ten years younger

more comfortable
with your eyes rolled back
in your head

concluding remarks

the same gesture
each time
as if emerging
from underwater

the time you ambushed me
on the street

taking me by surprise
the passerby scoffed

sneak attack
our slogan

but need is not
necessarily harmful

desire strikes
at random

the latest fixation
the latest four hour Google search
the latest autodidact’s pursuit


and your singular focus
moved elsewhere
