First Kiss


He was tall with brylcreemed hair
Sixteen // a new driver’s license
She was petite // a spring flower
Fourteen // hormones tingling
Her cute irresistible smile drew him.
In the shadows of the church hallway
A first kiss // never to be forgotten
…Though so long ago

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so today De asked us to write a Quadrille of 44 words that included a reference to a kiss. I wrote this one in memory of my first kiss!

  1. I looked up quadrille and could only find its reference to square dancing – but it’s got five parts or movements, each complete in itself. Is that what the // represents? The definition also referred to “rule in squares.” Is that the shape of the poem? I want to try a quadrille. Help me understand the form, will you?
