I placed my lips to hers
Like I’d seen on TV…
Surprised and delighted
As her tongue met mine
And I finally knew
What kisses were about
How do you know how
To do something if you’ve
Never seen it done right?
In a nation afraid to be
Honest about love and sex
I know that honesty is best

      Thank you, Suzanne. The prompt was reminiscing…goes back to age 17. I don’t have a great memory for many things. However, who forgets their first kiss?
