I've never liked the sound of kissing.
The smack, the pop, the swish of saliva
repulse me like nothing I know.

Surprising; the meeting of such soft skin
Could make such a harsh cacophony of sound
With no mercy for ear.

No wonder the kiss is socially for private.
Who would wish to hear sound so wet
Without the sensation of touch?

Unpleasant, wet, harsh, smack, pop, swish, cacophony.
There must be something wonderful in taste or feel
to make it worth out ears.

This is just a funny piece I was inspired to write after passing two people who were trying to taste each others' tonsils in the hallway of my school.
