One Poem by Carol Tahir


Summer of 65


Cruising Lincoln Boulevard, radio blaring

Can’t Get No Satisfaction playing

Flirting with the boy’s in the next car

In the summer of 65

Only to meet them at the drive in movies

Exchanging cars, trading passengers 

Who watched a movie. 

In the summer of 65

Cramming all those memories

In a few short months 

Knowing the draft calls

After high school graduation 

In the summer of 66
