Bell Bottom Trousers

I remember when I got my

grey bell bottoms

when I was only 14

They had cuffs and

I thought they were

the coolest pants

I wore a pale pink blouse

with those pants

Sometimes I put on a red vest

and I thought I looked good

When you’re 14 and you get new clothes

you think you are the cat’s meow

Walking into Harry’s Pool Hall

or just down the road was enhanced by those pants

Funny when you are a teenager

and a bit of material sewn a certain way gives you joy

Wonder if teenagers today still get this same feeling

when they wear their stylish jeans
