kiss

by amy sharp


If you're going to kiss her like that you'd better think about what to do with your hands and just how far you can bend her back origami fold her up and press her out.
Don't you look at your clock and think about time. 
It ticks like a lord no matter what.
Just fall in. Over. Around.
Pull her down.
Watch her mouth hang like broken hinges. 
Wet windowpanes.
Can you see her teeth?
Put your ear to her lips.
You can make out all the words.
You just have to want to hear them.
