My First Date Poets Dozen

my fourteenth summer. .  
the son of a preacher man
showing me heaven

His teasing ways and his boyish grin.
How easily I was taken in!

I felt like a woman in my cute short culottes and wearing pink frost lipstick
that he’d kissed off my mouth before the night was through.

My best friend, with her guy, was in the front seat of the car.
My date, her older cousin, was my first sweet honey bee.
We made out in the back seat, but he never got too  far.
I was raised to value my virginity.
But my youthful heart was wishing we could kiss eternally!

Great stuff, Andrea. I can visualize a hot August evening, a Chevy Biscayne and the sounds of 'Rag Doll' by Frankie Valli punctuating the occasional 'Dean, stop it!!!". Same over here, but with crappier cars. Your poem will do well, Andrea. Viv x

Do you remember the song about a preacher man - with the line "The only boy that could ever reach me was the son of a preacher man". I like that tune! Please let me know what you think of "Hate Talk". I have been reading I.B. Singer - have you ever read his books. He took the noble prize. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

Good flow and pleasant sounding filled with great imagery exhorting the sights and sounds locked in the memory and heart of all teenaged girls. Emile.
