The first time


Though time has passed

I remember it well,

The first time…


My anticipation,

The sheer exhilaration,

Complete emancipation!


How you felt against my skin,

As you enveloped me

And I took you in,


Against the shadows

And dunes

Of emptied streets.


And I – like a child

Tasting a treat,

For the first time-


Walking in the snow.
