School Dance

Young boys
Looking in the mirror
Combing hair with wet comb
Practicing alluring smile
Flexing developing biceps
Steel yet to be hardened
Dreaming with sweaty palms
Hoping she says yes


Inspired by Monterey's poem Hope

    Richard This write is cute and creative. The descriptive words lets the reader imagine past dances and the fear of asking someone to dance. Nice job

    You have perfectly captured the situation... Girls always looked much older when you asked them to dance. After the first dance I felt much bolder.... Jake

    'Dreaming with sweaty palms hoping she says yes-How sweet this is.Reminds me of the exitement of my first teen dates..What a lovely feeling.

    Great Imagism. It's good you've thought of these boys..it reminds me of those years; shadow boxing, rehearsing a step to lure girls, fine-tuning the voice....Thanks for sharing. JM By the way, I featured you in my latest poem: POPCORN MUSIC.JM

    Awesome! I used to be one of those boys! Combing my curly afro hoping my nerdy smile will attract that tall, brunette girl. Ah, what wacky days...

    Me too, I still love to dance. Fortunate for me No more worry of being rejected. The sweaty palms have also dried.

    I absolutely love it! This is the perfect balance for my poem. The view from the other side of the dance floor.
