how these first loves never disappear

of course, i've got more

when i was five
(older and wiser in the ways of love)
i was in kindergarten
and his name was scott
and i went to a wedding
and he was there
and we danced at the reception
and talked about school
and he stepped on my toes
and i stepped on his
and this girl dared me to kiss him
and i did
i didn't love him the same as
nameless arkansas boy
his name was scott.
