Just Before Take Off

My weird fluid life
gives me countless lips I chase,
lean into their dare,
but seldom sturdy
as these seem to be, terrain
a more jovial
field than the grim line
I am used to.

Can you smell

The scent of teeth
poised for the next bite?
Lavender lips, bright
white teeth just about to crush
the yellow paving,
the time release drug
that will propel us into
a launch position?

    1. Hmm. How can that be? We spend huge money as a nation on a variety of ways to avoid offense of smelly teeth.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
