Taking the Grammar Out of the Kiss

"A kiss can be a comma, a question mark or
an explanation point. That's basic spelling
that every woman ought to know."
-Mistinguett in Theatre Arts

Your kiss was like a question mark,
she said, & my lips were giving you
the answer. That was why I got mad
when you pulled away. I needed
to kiss you again to get a reprise.

=Poem by Hal Sirowitz, from his book Before, During & After
