Buying My First 45

Tommy James’ “Draggin’ the Line”

snagged for four bits, lifted

from my grubby little mitts like a grudge

by the shopkeeper at Reese’s Records.


Drum-bass-brass in nine-year-old ears,

rock’n’roll drove me straight off my Mercator

of the familiar into terra incognita:

Here be dragons.


for the dVerse Monday June 3 prompt: Quadrille #81 – Here there be {poem} dragons
