poem~ Afternoon Time Bomb

Afternoon Time Bomb

When I looked
closer at
your mouth
a slightest
cut
thin red
line
right side
bottom lip
an irritation begging
for something

and later
my eyes shut
that night
still feeling the sun
behind my lids
ears repeating
the sound of
you speaking
nothing 
words swirling through
the air of 
an afternoon time bomb
explosion I felt
seeing perfect red
division of lips

blasts of 
sultry sweetness
tangled vision 

my perception of
your smile.
