A Being Cool Mistake

Written for:  Poetic Asides #419 – Write a “made sense at the time” poem.

Models in short
sculpted hairdos
adorned covers
of high gloss
magazines. Waifs
in mini-skirts,
heavy eye liner,
kohl black.
teenagers, myself
among them, thought
they could be
fashion models with
copycat coiffures.
Had my hair cut
stylishly short,
and looked like
a mushroom for
a long time.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
