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?
