Soft Tissue

There is something special
about meeting in the flesh.

Eye to eye, tooth to tooth
a blush of cheek. 

Laughter on the lips
sadness in the fine lines 

spin a complex orbit.
A swallow, then a nervous cough

fingers tug at a pressed collar
small wrinkle at the sleeve

- your brows so smooth. 

So much more
to at long last kiss away.
