Static Cling

Friday night
campus bus

serious slips
into live-it-up

static cling
nylon skirts

Peacock Flare
newbie smudge

Remember the long-gone glimmer of weekends,
whittling ourselves into glamour girls,
un-walk-able shoes, un-dance-able songs,
the disappointment that lives
on the other side of a night out?






She lives in exclamation, on the edge of ravines
that eat good girls gone prom queens.

One night, I talk her down from a fight,
away from the scene into my clean
kitchen, my hot-cocoa voice
chases her choice
of Jack, and in the morning light,

the noise of the EPIC
fades into the everyday.
