Now mouth

Lines to caress me, undress me,
bless me, lines to confess me, to
make me. Wow, mouth.

Lines to impress me, digress me,
guess me, lines to distress me, to
wake me. Show mouth!

Lines to derail you, curtail you,
nail you, lines to impale you, to
break you. No, mouth!

Electric and tronic. Arting.
Liming and lemoning.
Painting and failing.
Pick me up, throw you down. Howling.

Howl mouth high lines and bylines,
shy lines, howl mouth on skylines, mouth
my lines. Now mouth.
