The child’s face showed she didn’t approve.

It wasn’t sweet, true,

but I liked it.

Perhaps my taste was moderated,

I reasoned,

by an adult’s appreciation of cost, convenience and health.

Indeed, adult considerations.

As I reflected upon such realities

the juice tasted better

and better,

beyond banalities.

Such is life.

Get used to it, kid!

Is the past ever

truly,

completely past?

1991,

we were young and hopeful,

with ideas of freedom

and possibilities,

in reality,

we were naïve and stupid.

We went to the show,

the music and vibe was powerful,

we liked AC/DC

before we understood the words,

later, we realized,

idiocy we heard.

Someone waved an Australian flag,

made in the USSR.

Lies, broken promises,

bitter-sweet lost dreams.

Imagine,

stasis as the best option.

Hope sleeps.
