Before your time

we danced to the warm sounds of the
Beetles, Monkeys, and Carpenters
spun from worn vinyl records

before your time...

bell bottoms, mini skirts, and hot pants
swung from our hips, high above
tawny brown boots laced knee high

before your time...

we drank in the fresh night air
from the back of racing motorcycles
and in rows at the drive in theater

before your time...

A really fun exercise in interviewing others, to get their perspective, to share it from mine.

This was great - from an old man who was there, kinda.

Thanks Mosk, I cheated by having family lead me down their memory lanes. Got to know them better in the process!
