My First Intimate Love (2005)
She was older than me.
I was just eighteen .
She was twenty one,
Whilst I strained to do my best,
She lay back, yawned and said:
“Are you going to be long?”
“Get on with it.”
It was not exactly romantic.
It was more frantic than that.
It lasted three weekends or so
Enough for me to discover delights
In the open air
On the Isle of Wight
And the Thames Embankment.
These days it would be enough to earn
A Certificate, an NVQ
In the practical aspects of love.
