Yes, yes, this is very romantic.
All I can think about is our crazy dog who licks everything. Including the bottom of feet, toes, and the backs of knees. The knee pit is by far his favourite sneak attack spot. You will just be going about your business, and EWWWWWWW wet, dog tongue makes contact with bare skin. Oh, he is big on following you around. So this poem is really about the crazy dog.
Let me know if you want me to erase this comment. It won’t hurt my feelings.
