like water on a desert island
like lotion on a sunburn
like sleep after an all-nighter
like spaghetti after a fast
like chocolate cake and ice cream (after a diet)
like real whipped cream after the cheap stuff
like the first bite of steaming popovers at brunch
like diving in fresh pillows after a long day
like mint and ice cubes in 95º weather
like the first sip of a superior wine
like the moon rippling on a patent leather river
like the brush of soft fur on my skin
like the burn of hard liquor going through me
like a sea of possibilities
is kissing you
