Girls of Slender Legs

Driving home through the shoals of
long-legged foals took me back to
less puritanical times, to
Liverpool in the 70’s when
“schoolies” were fair game, with their
skirts rolled up, their
satchels and sarcasm, their
white socks and dark hearts, so
ready to be led astray they
often gave you a roadmap,
driving you on with their
slender legs around your waist, their
school-shod heels urging more,
deeper, faster, longer, in the
language of Chaucer with a
Scouse accent.
