When our lips accidentally stuck together

I should have applied extreme moistening,
used generous quantities of warm water

and pressure from inside the mouth,
systematically peeled and rolled

then avoided swallowing the glue;
I learnt the hard way:

pulling away too quickly
it adhered to the inside of my cheek.

There’s an art to coming apart.
