Week 35- Heather Ouellette-Cygan

Someone Else’s First Kiss


Thames * Periwinkle * London * King’s Road * Avocado * April * Archeologist


Perhaps it was the tongue, his tongue, digging more deeply than any archeologist into the cavern of her mouth.  He salivated like the Thames as he seemed to search out each cavity in there. Swallowing an avocado seed would have been less awkward that April.


Her eyes, periwinkle twinkles, looked on her crush as he held her on the back porch of the rectory. And she felt the thrill of getting her hair cut off on the King’s Road in London. It was scarier, too.


Would he tell she was a sloppy kisser?


Didn’t matter. She’d waited for that cigarette kiss and her tongue smooth against the yellow tar stains on his teeth and his worn Carhartt  jacket and that spring day since before she remembered.
