Prom night

Prom night

Tender is this night

where high school’s on the mind’s back-burner

and memories of youth rush back like blows

to the head.

One night.

Of last chances to create legacies

on the hardwood dance floor

between the dandy suits, flowing dresses,

jiving bodies and hidden hipflasks

under the drunken, glittered disco ball

and shocking neon lights.
