Bubblegum Pink

bytigerjen©

**This poem is based on a dream I had back
in June 2001**


senior year
high school girl
dolled up for prom
in a flapper dress
of bubblegum pink
sequins

looking
searching
for perfect jewelry
and handbag

tears running
down her face
because cheap stockings
have several runs

and no date for tonight

arriving in a limo
solo
she discovers her
best friend betrayed her
by going with a date
and leaving her
high and dry

she is the evening's
wallflower
blending into the
bubblegum pink walls
at the prom

alone
and forgotten
