Buffalo Tongue at the Olympic Game Farm

His first kiss
A fishhook kiss
That first night
When he thought she was a one-night stand.
Shocked how fast and deep
His tongue in her mouth
He kissed her without touching her lips.

Later she saw the same maneuver
On grand scale
At Sequim’s drive-thru zoo,
A buffalo tongue
Thrust through the crack in her car door window
Black steamy and agile
Curled at the tip
Like his tongue, probing
Greedy for–
Of all things–
Her white Wonder Bread hot dog bun.
