music can bring you back

to a different place, time

a saw a friend from high school days

she reminded me of our mutual appreciation of Supertramp

I started listening to the songs and it was instantly 1979

I was 16

big hair, Dittos jeans, Candies shoes

football games, proms and disco

dancing and eating ice cream sundaes

young and silly

roller skating up and down the streets of downtown DC

Armand’s pizzeria in Tenley

all night phone conversations on a land line

blue eye shadow and peach lip gloss


days long gone

but never forgotten

I took the long way home
