What it Was

you in your bolo tie
me in acid-washed
jeans – our faces
defined by big hair

[trying to woo me]
you brought bread
for the ducks
but those ducks
snapped and honked

1988 was a different animal
[we could run and laugh]

  1. Oh, yes, the big hair!
    I can almost hear the ducks : )

  2. This is so visual, and I love the undercurrent of young-love awkwardness.

  3. Thanks for the follow, Angie. I’ll be back to explore your site when this class is over with. Where’s your menu, btw?
