A Poem: Tanya Green

by

comment

i would have kissed

you

hard,

the first time,

when i got the chance:

the park bench

behind

the elementary school,

on soft lips,

wet

with the last few

drops of dew stained

on the afternoon grass—

thought of your smile,

saw your face from

across the room,

sitting in the back row,

when you had an itch,

but couldn't get it

underneath your cast,

and the victory

when you realized

you could reach it

with your pen.
