Day 26: Sonnet

The first line of this came into my head, then I had to follow it through:


I want to know you through a kiss

Your tongue’s tendril flowering in my mouth

When I’m away, I kiss you in my head and it feels as real,

as this pen in my hand, its’ rubber coated body insistent on my fingers.


I hoped to remind you, through words,

of the texture of my mouth against yours, its insinuations on your palate

Press the different taste buds with the weight of a nib-like scrawl

searching the cave of your throat with this muscle


tilting my neck to take your tongue as far back as my gag reflex

pushed beyond that,

A smooth piece of flesh as raw

as the inside of your heart


I want to know you

as completely as this.


The Stirred quad is formed of Rebecca Audra Smith, Anna Percy, Jasmine Chatfield and Lenni Sanders.
