23 February: for dVerse Poets

AI artwork. young boy, blue eyes, wearing a hoodie. He has a black eye.
First kiss. 

At 10, I suppose. 
His name. Craig. 
His father made 
dentures for a living. 
Craig gave me a ring, 
the colour of healthy gums.

The engagement was 

He kissed me.     Slid 
his hand over my stomach. 
Then upward.
So I punched him. 
          In the nose.
          And I kept the ring.
