My First Love - Poem by Jefferson Carter

MY FIRST LOVE


You bitched about my kisses,
too perfunctory, like one
of those toy birds dipping
its beak into a glass of water.

You're coming to visit me
& my wife. Who wants to hear
Etta sing "The Jealous Kind"?

I used sex to stay on top.
Once I compared
an old lover's nipples
to tiny sombreros & you
looked at me with such pity
I felt myself disappear.
