Love At First Sight

Kiss 5

Could I?
Know your name, your identifier,
Your dignity without human labels?
The good name?

So that I can live inside you
Like a yeast cell that will pass his
Days leavening all your feelings?
Boosting your wealth with the little deeds
I do, to preserve us, and
How you reciprocate me with tenderness.

Can I erase any decimal possibility of Godspeed
From our accidental meeting?
And caress your godsend lips with a vow,
In silence and surrender

That will never go, out of fashion.
