Before there was a name for it

I didn’t know the name for it: 14 years old, spring, going out with a girl on a date, getting a ride to the movies.

Innocent love, before it gets complicated with sex. Crawling all over each other with our tongues out, then riding home in the backseat of my parents’ car with the windows down, holding hands and hearing Lou Reed for the first time, the sun still out after nine.
