Innocence


Poesy plus Polemics

boardwalk summers
the beach a mere
adjuvant pleasure
a functional venue
for working one’s
time-killing tan until
sundown kicked off
teen hormonal parades
boys and girls strolled
in clustered coy pretense
while eyeing each other
in search of the smile
the look that conveyed
subtle signs of some
interest when finding it
digging for unpracticed
confidence steeling
themselves to approach
for a mutual test of
allure and a possible
pairing to sit side-by-side
on the cool evening
sands watching fireworks
paint colored promises
onto the night across
youthful projections
excited by ancient
traditions of courtship
