Brittle boy girl lamplight corner,
glow chip shop darkened streets.
Night held breath, fingers sparking,
the knowing generation meets.
Where loadstone days embrace,
the itch of destiny unfolds,
then do faerie days, as must away,
for in bated breath - lo, and behold!
A child no more. No more blushes,
in church hall breathless musky dances,
tiptoe on eggshell furtive crushes,
shared in surreptitious longing glances,
winks the eye of the hormonal storm,
surfing the waves of angst and joy,
running stampede, heartbeats thrumming,
when boy meets girl, and girl meets boy.
