"Because I cannot remember my first kiss" by Roger Bonair-Agard, a teacher at the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center, was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on November 14, 2013. A link to the poem, including the poet's notes, may be found here:
In prose-like free verse, the poet recalls when he was eight years old, watching a Tom Jones (pictured) concert on television. The concert is used as an elaborate metaphor for the poet's sexual awakening.
