Bubblegum Memories

It was one of the long summer nights
that make you feel nostalgic for them
before they’re over.
We were doing everything we could think of
that would make our parents
shut their eyes and cringe
simultaneously.

We wanted to test out our youth,
break it even,
and find it whole in the morning
folded on the foot of the bed.

Everything smelled like original flavored gum
and that one perfume we all
thought seemed to smell expensive.
We were acting like the reality TV stars
that we never wanted to be
but would always watch
with a bizarre sense of envy.
