The kiss

   She stepped into my space. The tips of our noses were touching. Her arms were around my neck. We were on the sidewalk infront of her house in full view. "What are you doing?" I asked. "I am giving you some attention," she cooed. "Do  you want some attention?" I was losing my battle for balance. "I do not now," I heard myself say. "You are really dumb," she wispered in my ear. "Yea?" "Yea. Why do you think there are eighteen pebbles in my wagon? And then the last remaining space between our lips was gone and I was falling headlong into her eyes, right there on Palo Verde. And I could tell, That was no saint kissing me.
