"Before the days of penetrated ears,

earrings were fastened to the lobes

with small, excruciating screws.

My earlobes throbbing, I would venture out.


In those days out was full of content.


For there were places full of lovely chaos,

a special lighting that conferred a glow

of: anything can happen here,

a glint of: things aren't really as they seem.

Stories, magic spun beneath those surfaces.

Dramas, poems, paintings, crises, scandals

happened in the benediction of that light.

At those gatherings, I sweat I lost

thirty-seven left-lobe earrings easy.


Can I go back and find them all again

and rediscover Lenny, Mario and Cristen,

Dennis, Callaghan and Sally Quinn

and ask them what was really going on

deep in their corners on the night I lost

the snowdrop fuzzy dangling left-lobe earring;

and how it really was for Caroline

the party when we danced with gold balloons

the night I lost the scarlet hoops

their first time on?"
