Dreamboat Annies

Windswept through adolescent anomie
Trying to find a place to take root
an identity to shelter me
No clue what I wanted
only this-
Someone to want me
To be diaphanous
desirable
To be a Stevie or
a Dreamboat Annie
I listened to the music like a disciple
and though I couldn't play a note
I wanted to join the band.

Ha, I would say the two of you did pretty good. And didn't we all want to join a band or a singing group or something in those adolescent years!

Fine memory, fashion, "windswept" like a seed looking for nourishing places to take root.

This was lovely and brought back memories of wanting to be Frida from ABBA.
