Two lips touch electrically.
Freud explodes, smiling.

The eyes of prisons melt,
you with me, I with you

past pleasures measure
in importance only faintly.

You love, I love invest love
Nothing else on my God's earth

Bless these lips touched and touching,
mention pleasure once dreamt

now extant in gorgeous smiles
firm as churches built of stone and rock

for no inviting reason.
