Kiss It

There is a gestation period.

Two months ago, on my birthday, I went for a slam featuring Marc Smith and he performed this piece, which I liked.

If you need to kiss it,
Kiss it.
If you need to kick it,
Kick it.
If you need to scream it,
Scream it.

But kiss it, kick it, scream it
Now.

If you need to leave it,
Leave it.
If you need to love it,
Love it.
If you need to hold it,
Hold it.

But leave it, love it, hold it
Now.

If you need to squeeze it,
Squeeze it.
If you need to spill it,
Spill it.
If you need to tell the world
You’ve got more to you
Than the world has as of yet
Allowed you to be,

Then be it, tell it, spill it,
Squeeze it out of each instantaneous moment.
Make the juice, the jive, the jazz, the jism,
The mysticism that ism you!

Grab at the moon!
And hold the stars hot inside your head.

‘Cause now is all there ever was
And all there ever will be.

So kiss it, kick it, scream it
Now!
