Once upon a time,
The old stories spoke
Of throwing the frog,
(Ingratiating helpmate
That he was),
Splat! against the wall.
Not nice, that.
Somewhere along the line,
The tale was changed
To kissing instead. Please.
Slimy and wet
With webbed fingers,
Rubbery lips and “ribbit” ?
I'm not entirely sure I'd
Call that better really.
But, kissing it is, these days.
So. We lean in close,
Eyes squeezed shut,
Lips trembling in
Breathless anticupation.
Poised on the edge
Of imminent transformation,
Or imagined bliss,
Time spirals down into
Sweet liminal moments
When infinite possibilities
And fairy tale endings
Sweep between
Our pressed-together mouths.

  1. Bravo, beautiful, it reads like poetry…wait that is poetry.

    Interesting about frogs getting thrown against the wall. My baby sister, this was years ago, once picked up a tiny frog, and lovingly dismembered it, kissing it every time she removed a limb. She was only about three or four years old. She claims today that it never happened. But I was there and saw it. (I was seven or eight.) Unfortunately, since she does not admit to the incident, I can’t quiz her on her state of mind at the time.
