1. the first girl

    déjà vu fades
    to something familiar
    life-long child-life
    familiar – like I’ve
    thrilled at braiding
    her hair
    once when we were 12
    and being so near
    made me shine unfamiliar
    I remember
    and shiver
    the chill of heat
    on the back of our necks
    at the hinge of our jaws
    some elusive joining
    ticklish sharp joint
    from the back of girls’ knees
    silky chains netting inexplicable links
