Last night

Last night
for no reason
I was visited
by our
first

kiss.

It whispered
into my head –
uncomfortable
with hazard,
vulnerable
with shy warmth,
unremarkable.

In the porch
friendship,
tied on the track,
resonated
with a train
thundering
its peril
and unknown
destination.

Last night
for no reason
I remembered
our
first

kiss.
Thankful
that no rescue came.
