My First Introduction


The first time I saw you

Behind the counter in the coffee shop

During my second week

We were passing ships

As I clocked out

And you clocked in

Days later

Below the full moon’s glow

On the small deck dusted with ashes

Outside of your junior apartment

We talked so long

I forgot there were fifteen other people

Squeezed into your living room

And stood captive in your gaze

My first introduction

To your flushed cheeks

Your laughter
