Poetry by Jeff Green


That summer

That summer
was hotter than ever before
and so
were you

I sat at a desk
as you lazed
on the grass
short skirted
and flirted

The day before
it had been me
today it wasn’t

It never mattered
at seventeen


Author notes

I should have been working towards A levels but BLIMEY in 1976 skirts were short and summer days were hot and long.
