junior prom

Posted to Action Poetry




I hold him now as always
in my mind
beautiful and singular
his greatest attribute
his ability to love me.

Say this never happened.
Say he was never seduced.

It doesn’t matter,
he is forever
trembling as he
takes my hand
forever
avoiding eye contact
forever
in black tie,
licenseless
as I drive us to the dance.
