Summer ’76

We sweated it out,

Backseat riders on blue pleather,

As Afternoon Delight flooded our

Cigarette fueled dreams.

Moms with macramé bags

Dads with porkchop sideburns

And Old Style beer cans

Jostled at fuel pumps

Vying for precious drops,

To feed carbureted

Detroit steel behemoths.

&

We,

Innocent, unaware

Of all things adult,

Skipped ropes

Rode bikes

Never thinking time would pass

Or summer would end.
