Semi Tone

entry picture

Place the valve
of  your lip's 
and your smile's 
breath against 
my cheek and
breathe a note
to inform me
of its lasting
and gentle

While sighing
from within
you play now
the music's 
pressed tone.

I'm always up for the musical stuff, and an image I had was a trumpet because of the word Valve which is also like another feminine word, to access which requires more than a sidestep.
It is a lovely lyrical idea and which works so well!

Tommy, when I read the title "Semi tone", I am immediately thinking "half step". That smallest musical movement, imagined in a kiss, that gentle leaning in. Good stuff.
