kiss

take your fingers and place them
like latticework
around your lover's neck.
cup your palms around the jaw.
press thumbs
to each earlobe.
do not move
more than you absolutely have to.
imagine, for a moment,
you are holding porcelain.
do not let go.
do not let this go.
forget about your mouth.
a kiss
is all
in the hands.
