"The Kiss" (a sudden poem)

I could tell you

love me because

I could taste

the Juicy Fruit

on your tongue.

Though I could

slightly tell you

enjoyed tinapang bangus

for lunch.

I don't mind

if you don't mind

the bitter

coffee on my lips.

Notes: Juicy Fruit is a chewing gum; very sweet.

Tinapang Bangus is fish preserved by salting; very salty and fishy.
