I kissed the person
I kissed the person that is you now
Today you are a different incarnation
Today you are the cut-out gingerbread man

Today you are organizing suitcases and eating
Spiced nuts

I kissed the person
I kissed the person that is you then
A different face with different watercolour texture
You were the wholeness of the circle of the full moon

You were biting your tongue and praying
for change

I kissed you here and here and here and there
Full up of family stories

the ghosts and the glory
the hurt and the heal
