Seven

One day I was playing lifeguard in the pool
My brother pretended to drown, so I saved him
I gave him pretend cpr, my little hands pushing his chest
Then I blew into his mouth until he laughed
And you were sitting there drinking your beer
Smoking your cigarettes~
And you asked me to run inside and get you another beer
Then you asked me why I never kissed you
The way I kissed him
And you took me onto your lap
And you put your tongue in my mouth
Your tongue tasted like an ash tray
And your breath smelled like stale beer
Sometimes when I think about you
I can still taste your breath.
