Stretched out on the grass
A boy and a girl
Savoring their oranges
Giving their kisses like waves exchanging foam
Stretched out on the beach
A boy and a girl
Savoring their limes
Giving their kisses like clouds exchanging foam
Stretched out underground
A boy and a girl
Saying nothing, never kissing
Giving silence for silence
