A NORTHERN WOMAN RECALLS HER YOUTH

How to explain the sad

appeal of 60 denier black?

No other colour kosher it's

the default drab so what's up

are they aiming to impersonate nuns

or just a conformist habit?

 

In shops round town I hum

a lost vocabulary of sheer

and shades no longer worn.

Seems opaque black was sent

as mind control like smart phones

and fast food. To dumb down

and boost profit but I remember

years ago arse-frozen in nylons

for the sexy afternoon encounter

 

or misbehaviour after chips

behind the park pavilion -

those breathless vinegar fingers

smudging lace top

and at night I'd turn heads

in the pub each time my legs

went to buy a round.

 

Based on a conversation with an ex-girlfriend when we met up years later. Market forces kill glamour once again.
