This is how we meet people

First our eyes Wink,

Blink

touch

With a stare and make love. Then break up

And walk away as strangers silently.

With our mouth

                We lie to our partners that we have never kissed.

nor understand the wet message the tongue delivers

In a foreign language

After all it was with the eyes.

So do not listen to the tongue

When you want the truth

The eye is always guilty
