I kissed

The first I kissed late at night on the pavement outside
And I kissed another eleven months later on the railway where trains don’t go on my tippy toes
And I kissed the third with my hand in his that’s now decomposed in his childhood bedroom
I kissed the fourth because it tasted like vodka and I was in pain and an hour later I cut him from my skin
I sat on the stands and kissed the fifth that violated the fourth but I blame that on grief
And I kissed the last in the back seat of his car when we drove to the beach in early May and I made the common mistake of falling in love
