kissicles / cycle of a kiss

somewhere in her kiss is the divine
and she knows it, uses it to lure them back
to her, releases and deposits small bits
of lust wine, directing it with the tip of her
tongue into the spores of each subject’s
weakness, a different place for every one
and she knows it, uses time, a good ear
and one or two keen manipulations to
log what she needs – is that too much?
or – that’s a sensitive spot for you, isn’t it?

her friends love to wrap their envy around her,
leave her out by the front of their plans the way
she’s left them tracing water spots with their
fingers back at the bar, so many times that
they are far from the truth at the forefront of
her mind, where she wonders, really, of
how she might keep this one, this time
a little longer, no one realizes she does not
wish for each new fling to be a fling

somewhere in her kiss is the divine and
they all know it, lust after it, let themselves
be trapped by it, talk about it in circles later
when they meet up at a different party and
become friends, and laugh, they all laugh,
at who left who first and why not, it’s a small
world and everyone knows everyone is getting
kissed, or left, or recycled where it’s safe to
keep the cycle going by the story of its spin
