Stealing the Press
by Ben Smith
There is
a lipstick stain
on her glass.


The perfect shape
of a kiss.

When she stands
to go to the toilet,
i steal her glass
and suck off
the whale blubber
and animal fat
like its a flavour

Like its a kiss.

She comes back
and i wipe
my mouth.

Ben Smith lives and writes in Melbourne, Australia.
