i can't remember if i wrote this down from somewhere, or just wrote it. i found it lurking in my folders.
you know by now how important kissing was to both of us and how much we liked it. we knew our preferences and our moves. we knew the dynamics of our score: when soft, when hard, when short, when long, when slurred, when staccato, when tongued, when only lipped, when open-mouthed, when closed, when held lips-to-lips without movement, when to bite, when to suck, when upper-lip to under-lip, when to breathe and when to hold our breath. we knew our rhythms, and our tempo, we knew our signs for intervals and for cadenzas.
it was an art we revelled in and strove to perfect.
