I like to meet in tongues
AlchemiA

I like to meet in tongues
 1
so I dedicated my skull to learning about taste
 2
feeling around for that pretty one
 3
who gets with speaking in tongues and
 4
licking soliloquies in my inner ear
 5
and tastes like irony and apples and sweet discoveries
 6
 
 
looping and rolling tongues
 7
licking and learning --
 8
drinking the waters of each other
 9
where we can taste friend or enemy
 10
and explore what each other has
 11
forgotten
 12
on the
 13
tip of the tongue
 14
 
 
I tasted your lost keys once
 15
and found them where you said you had looked
 16
maybe if I lick your boots I'll know where you've been
 17
maybe my tongue is better at tasting the future than the past
 18
 
 
Somehow I knew we were coming to an end
 19
I tasted your dry lips and your tongue
 20
hid behind that uneven wall
 21
 
 
You tasted of metal coldness and strange memories
 22
I began to taste my own sickness
 23
I can taste it even now
