Titanium Kisses (Poem 4)

She had a tongue-ring in
The first time she kissed me
Of course she did
It whispers her just perfectly
I’m supposed to be writing about Kenya and peacebuilding
But I can’t think about Kenya without remembering
Her tongue-ring
in my mouth

It tasted like metallic possibility
