Imagined Kisses

Imagined kisses recall and project.
Reincarnating past kisses, mixing

with future kisses. Imagined kisses
are almost and they buzz there.

Imagined kisses are everywhere
and anything you’ve got in mind.

Make them and take them.
Read these lips; you wrote them.

When you see these lips, imagine kisses.

This poem makes a lovely and giddy circle. It's playful and teasing, yet also haunting and fanciful. It leaves me remembering all the kisses I imagined as an infatuated teenager, and imagining all the kisses I remember as a young man. Thank you for playing this enchanting poem.
