the smell of rain
a snippet of tune
and you’re
soon back there
standing in a doorway
at the entrance
to a club
smoking maybe
(everyone did)
and you’re listening
as the sound of a pop group
rises up from the cellar.
You remember.
And you remember
those four fellas
who went on to hit
the big time
in the USA,
and here,
who conquered the world
and changed everything?
History was being made.
Did you sense it happening
as you stood in that doorway
and a chap passing by
gave you the eye
(they all did).
How old were you then?
Sixteen? Seventeen?
