Klimt: The Kiss

Intimacy
Captured so closely
In slipping gold

Eyes closed
Luxurious contentment
Close to peace

Her flesh
Tinged green
Makes it look cool

All we have of him –
Those broad shoulders
The mop of dark hair

And that encircling action

Caught up in their womb-like
Cocoon-like
Embrace

Their fluid
Of sinking, slipping
Gold

His hands
That hold the essence
Of tenderness

The kiss
That dissolves
And solves
