We were walking on the shore of lake Michigan, wet and hot
the smell of fish and sand hung strong in the crisp air. You grabbed me and kissed me, squeezed
my breasts, lifted my shirt, exposing my breasts on the dock as an old man in a fishing boat watched.
I pointed at him and we ran away giggling to our friends house where we sang and drank ale.
And I was in love, with you
And with myself
For first time
Dizzy and happy and full of energy
High on being alive in our bodies
Young and brimming with expectations of greatness and wild wondrous success
Eager to earn it and to lose it and fight for it.
For all of it, not settling for damn thing, no regrets, just push push push and play play play
That’s the way we were
That’s how we are now
Because it works works works
To create the life we want
