Your first college day

Is always spent with me

Marry a preacher listen to Coldplay

But your first kiss at school

Is always me

You got the house with a pool

And all that goes with

But that first freshman sigh

Was when I said Hi

Eyes syncing in silence

Minds racing without license

Exchanging numbers in compliance


Straight home picked up the phone

Fingers possessed rotary flying

Smiling dialing memories filing

Life arranged—said you’d never change

Now away from home—on the range

You’ll never be the first date

at college with anyone but me

You’ll never stay up late

for your first kiss at school

With anyone but me

My ear will never feel a nuzzle

Of a nose quite like thee

My heart never solves the puzzle

Why that autumn was a fall for me
