First School Dance (1962)
larrylark

Adorned by all i wanted, felt fully formed.
 1
My brand new suit from John Collier's
 2
flapped above the folly
 3
of brown chisel ended gold buckled shoes
 4
whose soles i'd proudly polished the night before.
 5
"Good Golly  Miss Molly,"
 6
I was out there to kick up a storm.
 7
 
 
Never try to be cool when you can't,
 8
on the shined up parquet surface of a school hall.
 9
While "dancing" to "What Do You Want" by Adam Faithless
 10
who all the girls adored. Heading for a fall,
 11
i tangled in his rhythms and went crashing to the floor.
