moon
is such an ugly word.


it's stubby and short
and cowish


there are no elegant rolls
of the flexible tongue
nor any sparks of sound
when the tip collides with
the backs of the teeth.


but it makes your tongue
do a long sweeping
caress of the roof of your mouth
and
it makes your lips
pucker and part and
meet again in a way that
fascinates
and
devastates
me.


much like love
is mostly
over
and
combines far too much
in too few letters


but starts with a small
greeting tap of tongue
onto teeth and
ends with a satisfying
and harsh bite down
onto your lower lip
