‘…. where do air kisses go to die….’
12 January 2024

mwah!

Air kisses

distant cousins of those other modern affectations

fist touch

elbow touch

mwah!

I’ve often wondered where air kisses end up

those vacuous

virtue signalling

symbols of the shallowness of modern life

designed more for affect than a genuine effect

the ‘affect’ being an exaggerated and theatrical gesture

the ‘effect’ being to be seen – and heard

real connection nowhere to be seen

or experienced

mwah!

do air kisses just fade into nothingness

condemned to a brief fleeting existence

then gone

unremarked

unremarkable

unremembered

unloved

meaningless

mwah!

or do they live on for eternity

condemned from their delivery

to exist in another world

the junkyard of empty gestures

living with their embarrassment

forever

shamed again and again

by any comparison to real affection

mwah!
