Emily Gordon: Movie Kisses

Tongueless stop-motions,
more violent than carnal,
they stand in for everything else,
and when the lovers step back,
they’re as dazed and sated
as though they’d fucked for days,
the way it feels after alien abduction
or a long time-travel, that it’s been
years—though anyone watching
would say it passed in an instant.
