Excuse Me While I Kiss This Guy

I’ve been resisting it.
Propriety and all…
damned propriety.
Damn it properly!
Because I’m done with it.

For propriety’s sake
I’ve denied myself
the most perfect lips
that curl into
the most devilish smile?
No, that’s done.

His hand wraps up mine –
the quickness of his breath
tells me he's done waiting too.

We permit each other
to still our tongues
from forming words
to put them to alternate uses.
No more excuses needed.




This poem was inspired by the prompt given over at Imaginary Gardens for Real Toads: What's My Line (Misheard Song Lyrics)

    1. LOL, it was part of the Toad's prompt for that week - create a poem based on misheard song lyrics. I went with this one, based on "Excuse me while I kiss the sky" from Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix.
