After the Movies

After the Movies
Valentine’s Day Night 1959

Curiously with a
slant of his face
my chin turned up
and then the embrace.

A teenaged kiss in
in his best friend’s car
while Johnny Mathis sang,
“Chances Are”

So close, so close 
as I nuzzled his cheek
he whispered “I love you” 
can we do this next week?

    Congrats Kathryn on this nostalgic, romantic memory jarrer being featured.Two weeks after the plane crash but for a few more years, the music remained fabulous. My fav JM song was "The Twelfth of Never."

    Brings back memories. I played the Johnny Mathis show many years ago. I can still hear the style. This one ages you, dear kathryn. Congrats on the selection. Love, daver
