POETRY MOVEMENT 11-27-2002

My first poem, so don't be too mean.
ACHE: a memory

that explosive rush of
holding hands with
someone you don't know very well
for the first time and
turning and
kissing them and
lips meeting like magnets
thrown together from a distance and
connecting
perfectly
in mid-air
"i love you"
you might say afterwards, but
it doesn't matter, because
the memory is nothing compared to
the moment before
