history

nostalgia carries
sound and scent
you remember
how it felt
where it went

nicotine, acetylene
burning youth
passion screamed
hair spiked up
with shaving cream

ripped T-shirt
tattered jeans
ear-splitting music
filled the space
in between

power in the lyric
purpose in
the voice
conformity never
was a choice

nights lasted longer
remember how
we danced
history never gets
another chance
