“careless whisper” and a broken heart

you know those stupid
little christmas dances
where girls start to enjoy
the company of boys
and vice versa?

a friend of mine
was completely head
over heals for this guy
-- well -- as much --
as one grade 8 could
comprehend -- one
four letter word
that can metamorphosis
over the years to mean
different things

during “careless whisper”
antonio had decided to stop going
with her -- trista had run out
of the gym in tears and vowed
never to listen to that song
ever -- even until this day
-- the notes of that song
will never darken
any proverbial
