5: nice kisser
from The giraffe

Sébastien Smirou translated by Andrew Zawacki


To see what's up and catch the chameleon
coats his tongue with a watery
gum of me it's true it's also of you
who blow us over on the other hand the acacia
seems to be in love by itself
its leaves of self-adhesive grace
and you you two inhale each other the suckle-me-down
if you see what I mean.
