even got to first base

Janet Kuypers

I know what the bases mean
when it comes to intimacy —

First base, kissing.
Second base, groping through clothes.

Third base, skin on skin groping,
and a home run is going all the way.

I get it.
I understand the metaphors.

But whenever
I’ve gone to a baseball game,

I was always going with friends,
and I don’t get “intimate” with my friends.

So whenever
I’ve gone to a baseball game,

I never even got to first base.
