Transgression; or, The Kiss
by Diar

The mystery of love is in the breath.

The flames of two lovers’ desire wrestling, one against the

is in the dramatic action of whose lips conquer whose

in the transgression of the kiss.

The flesh is a dormant interface awaiting violation by the lips,

electric currents jumpstarting battery-drained limbs.

Lips entangled within lips brings the soul to the surface,

as the heart becomes animated

by the shockwave of passion rolling through

the transit network of veins and arteries

crisscrossing the body’s subterranean geography.

Kiss you and your life will not alter.

Kiss me, and I will relinquish my part

as a self-willed hunger artist  

and, almost blind from starvation, and a weakened pulse,

fall into the golden-wheat-filled pastures of your lips                  

and take mindless pleasure in every kiss you stamp on my skin.
