It hit me
all at once

a true epiphany

as I began to interpret
our last kiss –

your dazed eyes
slanted toward sky

then your full lips
drawn tight

Oh how unfair
life can be

when you don’t say no
to the onion rings.

  1. This is sheer poetic brilliance! I can picture those onion rings, the dazed eyes and lips drawn tight.. ah well .. a kiss is still a kiss πŸ˜‰

  2. This came to mind:
    Regrets, I’ve had a few
    But then again, too few to mention
    I did what I had to do
    And saw it through without exception

  3. With me it’s onions, with my wife it’s garlic. The kissing zone closes down in either case. Your levity was very welcomed.
