your husband or boyfriendnot wanting to kiss you...

March 04, 1993|By d. r. fair

your husband or boyfriend

not wanting to kiss you anymore,

because he feels trapped;

or putting on a pair of red 6-inch heels

because he thought you were your sexiest in them,

but he's dead now and the shoes

keep the memory of his lips close to you --

i've heard about this kind of stuff.

i watch oprah.

but my watching kisses disintegrate

on a 13-inch screen

is not the same

as you having your life wrapped around kisses.

there haven't been enough kisses

in my life to rummage through,

like a box of old photographs.

so, i can't understand why

you want to carry them

around in your pockets.
