our kiss was long awaited
like the completion of a dissertation after years of study
or dessert for the man who has wandered the Namib desert for years,
like the return of a prodigal son after years of deserting his family.
but it didn't feel right
It felt like a heavenly bite of a forbidden apple
like windows software on an apple product
like confirmation that you and i did descent from apes
and it was apparent there and then
when we shared that first kiss
that i was done for...
