She Taught Me

She Taught Me

She taught me many things
How to kiss was one

Satin lips brushed my cheeks
in greeting
and
in parting

Could be she knew how frayed I’d have been
had her lips pressed mine full-on

She taught me about electricity
I learned how current short-circuits speech
I felt the surge of energy
intense enough to suck the sea from the beach

If these things she didn’t intend
I’m the richer for having been
within her reach
