barbed-wire kisses

Somewhere between the late 1990’s and the early 2000’s, I was taking a creative writing class at a local community college.  One of the assignments was to write poetry…and I put together something about two lovers who could only meet at the fence of the jail yard where one of them was incarcerated.  All told, it was rather lame; kissing through the fence, etc., right, whatever; but the title remains in my memory.  It is refreshed, somehow, when I encounter the stuff again, the barbed-wire; it just pops to mind.

Anyway…sunrise along a high-desert highway in Arizona, 7/21/2019…there it is all over again…barbed-wire kisses….
