What if you could tell
from a kiss
if two people were compatible?
A small drop of liquid on the tongue,
a brief kiss,
then an answer
A sweet taste would mean yes.
No taste would mean nothing special.
A bitter taste would mean trouble.
Would you want to know right from the outset?
Would you kiss everyone you met?
Or, only the most attractive, hoping you'd be lucky?
Would you want to make a go of 'nothing special'?
Can one kiss give two results?
Would commitment happen sooner?
Could someone determine sexual preference
by kissing a few people?
Could you fake it?
Idea inspired by an episode of Farscape, one of my favorite science fiction television series.
