one regret

My one regret is stupid,
not kissing her in the alleyway,
I remember knowing it as
soon as the place passed,
yet not saying anything,
dragged along like a child
looking back at a toy.
I should have said,
Stop!,
grabbed her hand,
walked back along the sidewalk,
thrown her against the brick and mortar,
and had at it like a couple teenagers,
but if I had done something that stupid
I would no longer be
holding on to anything,
would I?
