Hit and Run

Forbidden to kiss.
Forbidden to touch.
road signs were vandalized
or were they ignored?
eyes plotting behind glasses
your elbow colliding with mine
an unexpected curve
limbs suddenly entwined.
the police report noted
a multi party accident
no mention of the cause:
your fingers fondling
the vertebral ridges
of my car keys.
