Metal Men Peppermint

by February 12, 2024 0 comments

Crumpled a page of ‘Metal Men’
Stuffed it under my cap
Went to meet Kathy at Tomato Smash

This is a do-over, she said
She brought lip gloss & peppermints
It will only be 1966 for a couple of minutes

Don’t fuck it up this time. The wind
Picked up I pushed my cap down &
The Metal Men crackled like fire

Quick! she said & 55 years of mistakes
Shot off to the hills like a rubber band,
Sweetened by the taste of peppermint

editors note:

Got a do-over on your wish list? Quick! Go do it! – mh clay
