My First Sentence

The first sentence I ever wrote
(without being told to write)
was a secret and a silent declaration
in blue.
A childish sentence on a piece of paper
composed of three words.
I hid it under the mattress.
I was thirteen or fourteen years old.

Why I wrote “I love N—-”
on that silly piece of paper
with a fountain pen
I must go back in time to find out.
