Post-Embrace

by Joanne Marisa Leow
i kissed you back

        (well not after but during?)


because i wanted to taste and touch

        fill these other senses

        with memories of you


because things happened as quickly

        asyourheartwasbeating


because of the way you whispered

        wrong

barely breathing

        that this would not make a difference


and because in our poetry

        (and when I'm with you)

words seem to run intoeachother

        (they run together)


        becoming useless.
