Our First Date

[A]
On our very first date
neither one of us knew how to act
we went out to hear some music
we came back to my apartment in a mood.

[B]
I don’t know if that is true
but it is how I remember it
it was so nice to be new
so right to be tied up
out of control like a taboo
cockeyed coming unglued.

[A]
On our second date we
gathered up some blankets for a night out
underneath the silk milky way
conversation shot across the desert sky.

[B]
At first we kept it discreet
not telling anyone anything
not at work not family
into winter and spring
keeping it secret and offbeat
the privacy heating it up.

[C]
It was the start of a life
neither one of us
knew or could have known
simply because we
always thought we were alone.

[A]
Wasn’t that a strange night
contemplating kissing and then kissing
thinking about wrong turned right
moving fast and wanting to be slow as snow.

[C]
That was a long time ago
worth remembering
innocent although
willing to wing it
following where it would go.
