22/12/11 – sweeter

Why does rain
taste so much sweeter
when licked off you?
Silly question.


  1. I have a student in my creative writing class who wrote a non-erotic poem about the saltiness of tears. This poem reminded me of that one. I’m no much of a poet but I appreciate how much meaning can be compressed into a few words. I’ve never had the opportunity to lick rain water off of someone but I believe it would be sweet.

    • Thank you so much, Lisle! Rainwater is indeed rather sweeter than tears – and off the right person, delectable.
