Happy Monday! Let's put the pedal to the metal and keep poeming.
For today's prompt, take the phrase "The First (blank)," replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles include: "The First Kiss," "The First Day of the Month," and/or "The First Time I Rode a Bike" (which, by the way, ended with me in a fence, because we didn't cover how to brake).
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a The First Blank Poem:
"the first word"
i can't remember my first word
but there was an underlying intention
a certain lack of tension
whenever you were around
& we somehow found time to talk
about the birds & the stars
& the words & the cars
