first kiss

salt seeps onto my tongue
as i bite my lip–
playfully, knowingly–

your eyes on me
(mine did not miss them)
but it’s your lips i’m watching
as my mind draws them to mine;
i can see your hands in my hair,
feel the roughness of your skin,

so I lift my lips into a lopsided grin,
just letting you know–
i’m in.
