Face Book Flashback
Author: Capricorn


I login ...
searching for familiar faces,
without success

until Ö

no photos shown
but it must be him.

Grad School:
University of Sheffield

Memories tingle.

That college disco --
the band sang 'Letís Dance'
I felt a feather-touch
on my shoulder.

'Dance with me?'

He was a young Paul McCartney
but sandy haired,
his dark suit was enhanced
with a narrow neon tie.

We twisted Ö jived,
our eyes writing
love notes to each other,
until the music slowed
'Canít Take my Eyes off You'
we embraced in rhythm
'Sealed with a Kiss.'

Romance only whispered,
because he wasnít free
but letters still sit
in the rose printed-chocolate box
tucked at the back
of my overflowing wardrobe.

I flush, remembering
him feed me
Turkish Delights,
lips mouthing
frisky fingertips.

I wonít friend him --
he might not want
to be reminded and
delete me.
