First Kiss

How far was it

To your first kiss?

Six inches?

A hundred restless nights?

Two heartbeats?


Guitars can float

Like butterflies in Big Sur

In the fall

On the wind

Like New England leaves.


Banjos like

Cowboys chasing cows

In the snow of a New Mexico blizzard.


Kisses can float like a dream

Not two heartbeats away.
