Lovers that are always
holding devices
are one arm short
when giving embraces

Fingers that are doing
other things
do not have time
to offer caresses

Lips that pucker
for the perfect pose
may forget that pouting
is meant for kisses.

I am writing 30 Poems in November to support the Center for New Americans which provides English language classes, education support and legal services assistance for immigrants in Western Massachusetts. Please see my campaign page to support this cause. Thank you, Iz.
