The Sixties Box

I went back to the sixties box

To see what I fogot. 

We should all check back with

Cheeky teenage years:

When we bought

Somebody’s dream of perfection.

It’s really hard with zits.

Here I am fourteen:

In a full-blown snit

In the bathroom,

Teasing my hair:

My bra strap broke..


A hormonal hurricane erupts,

Until I get a safety pin

And patch my way to school.
