How 'bout it?

(© by Stefano Spadoni)

How ’bout looking into each other’s eyes
    for one hour?

Then discussing the meaning
    of life for two?

And afterward how ’bout kissing
    for three hours
    without taking a single breath?

And how ’bout undressing
and then dressing again for four hours
with the eagerness each time
    of rediscovering our bodies?

And gently caressing each other,
for five hours
    until our hands get tired?

How ’bout it?

How ’bout making love for six hours
until we are worn out and fall fast asleep
and sleeping barely three hours
    until we start all over again?

If you count, you realize
    this makes twenty-four hours.

How ’bout spending an entire day with me?
