Poem: First Kiss

one damp press, lip to lip and not
enough pressure for me to remember
dry or luscious texture

__________________and then nothing

two weeks later I said let’s
just be friends
in the library, I think

__________________and then nothing

until a week later—he left
a threatening voicemail; I remember
none of his words

my parents called the police

__________________and then nothing

__I do remember
__long dark hair
__his mohawk
__was usually
