When I kissed you,
I put my name in your mouth,
And I took yours from you.
I rolled it across my tongue, and tasted it.
The spice and the sugars, the esters and sparks of your name.
It dissolved in my mouth.
And I could hear your voice in my head.
When your name dissolved with bubbles like champagne.
And I heard the crack, felt you bite down on my name and shatter it like hard candy,
like a jewel in your mouth in a thousand sweet pieces.
Chewed up my name and swallowed it while yours sparkled down my throat.
I took from you, you took from me.
You bit, and I let my
do the work.
Of breaking us down and taking us into each other.
Me in you, and you in me,
Eaten up like candy.
