One Summer Romance

Once upon a time
Prince sang
“Let’s Go Crazy”
and so we did
in the only way
high school seniors
know how

Junk food, bad booze
and fake IDs
ushered us into
gay bars to dance
like it was 1999
and we were living
it to the fullest

Exuding confidence
that we would always be
me, myself, I, and the boys
never imagining
that trash talk and
petty jealousies
would tear us apart

By the time we realized
that maybe we were just
like our mothers
and too bold like our fathers
it was over

the most spectacular
and dramatic
of summer
