first (Kimberly Wolf)

The first person to ever kiss me

played the drums in the youth band at church

I still taste his mouth sometimes

toothpaste fresh and warm honey

sure to cause me to sin and I did not

not want to sin

the drummer from church

kissed me like I was older than I was

my entire face held in his hands

my hands suspended in the air, hovering over his body

afraid if I touched him

I’d burn
