National Poetry Writing Month Twenty-Five

Static Shock

Thrown stones would have hit her in the Bible
She raised him to say it doesn't matter
Straight and gay are held to the same standard
Kissing should be a wild and private thing
She doesn't want it on public viewing

Beloved, will you join my rebellion
Touch your lips to mine with a shared inhale
Or tease mine ever so in a slow grin
Slide yours along all my tender tickles
With enough power to upset normal?

Let us put our mouths to the challenge
Preferably on the church's front sidewalk
