Poem - Chap You See

A friend bemoaned the fashion choices, culture interests, and attitudes they embraced in their “youth”. Little do they know of the secrets in my past! “Chap You See” reviews the skeletons in my closet.


Chap You See

There was a time when I was young
years before the present time
when my interests deviated
from the life I now pursue

these fashion choices hold no shame
nor do my interests in culture’s realm
all are foundation to who I am
with these years as origin

Menudo was my favorite band
posters covering bedroom walls
Rickey Martin went to fame
on the love of favorite fan

Hello Kitty defined my clothes
jeans and polo found to match
sublime in pink with flowers pinned
or the bow put to my hair

Risky Business was my job
with revelation of bare skin
from the top to the bottom
stripping fame by fruit string things

last I’ll remark about my passion
for rocker eyes and pink hair
neon polish on fingernails
Cyndi Lauper was my twin

all of these contradict
the buttoned down chap you see
in the now I’m quite plain
looking back to time of youth

don’t show surprise at what I’ve shared
everyone comes from the past
with the loves they may not show
though in their heart they still exist.
