Burning sneakers pushed to the edge

Labored breathing juvenilely ignored

First period teacher, hopefully late

Southern California Smog Alert dream

Compulsive youth pays the price with interest

Minimal sleep amidst TV glow

Pirated cable ushers MTV gods

Duran Duran, David Bowie and beloved Madonna

Gladly sacrifice my virginal body and soul

To musical deity’s cool jail-bait cause

High level smog in 80’s world brain

Damn it again! The cable is out

Convulsing because I missed my Headbangers Ball
