As a teen, my mam used to put the mockers on my Friday nights out by saying “If you meet any girls treat them with respect, they are someone’s daughter or sister, don’t be having any casual sex or one-night stands”
Last Saturday night I was out with my mate
He is meeting his bird, I am on a blind date
He’d said she was fit, but from where I was sat
She looks like ...

Hair elastic bangles around a wrist
Notches carved into a bedpost
One size down a leather belt
Bathroom stall in the back bar
Live a lie but love a kiss
Short lived bliss
Sun rise and sun run
A wrap dress undone
No, I don't mind
You should know I don't mind
I do this all the time
Please don't ask me if I'm fine
Because a warm sip of fire that rests in the chest,

My feelings bottled deep inside
Just hiding behind tall men like you
I feel very little
I laugh at the ridiculousness of it all...

The Mayfly Dance
It snowed on Christmas Eve
Nineteen Seventy Six
But that was later.
Earlier we had all met up
In our favourite student pub
Everyone under age and eager
The girls in cheesecloth shirts
And tight fitting Levis
The boys sporting long hair and moustaches
We didn’t look Seventeen
As we chose the jukebox plays
Of Zeppelin, Skynyrd ...
