Teodoro Luna’s Two Kisses
by Alberto Ríos

Mr. Teodoro Luna in his later years had taken to kissing
His spouse
Not a lot along with his lips as along with his brows.
This isn’t to say he put his brow
Towards her mouth —
Fairly, he would raise his eyebrows, as soon as, shortly:
Not so vigorously he is likely to be confused with the villain
Well-known within the theaters, however not so little as to be thought
A slight motion, one in every of accident. This manner
He kissed her
Typically and quietly, throughout tables and thru doorways,
Typically in pictures, and so by way of the years themselves.
This was his ardour, that solely she would possibly see. The possibility
He would possibly really feel some motion on her lips
Towards laughter.
