The Kiss
The kiss you blew me breezed past
In a swirl of toothpaste and sandalwood
I tried to catch it to hold it to press it
To my lips
It gusted past me to the far horizon
And continued on to the forever sky

    Dang! Either the kiss was overthrown, or the poet’s voice needed a fielder’s mitt. Beautifully written either way.

    Nothing like a little toothpaste in a kiss – far better than the pungent smell of nicotine breath!

    Kisses lost in the breeze…oh I can see them float past. Especially love the scent of sandalwood.

    So fun and so real. Just an FYI–my massage therapist told me sandalwood has gotten incredibly expensive. Finally got a quadrille up:
