places i haven’t been back to

like the tattoo
on your left arm
the one sort of about me
but many of them are

like when we walked
to that party
but never went in
because i was scared

and accidentally on purpose
and i wished you would have
grabbed my hand
spun me around in circles

the r rated movie
that you couldn’t see
because you were 16
birthday hadn’t happened

when i skipped science
and we went to dinner
took the bus
and you turned 17

in front of Chevys
when you asked
and i said yes
it wasn’t a surprise
