  • I begin by saying
    You were right
    When you suggested
    I was looking for some feeling
    That wasn't to be found
    Except for in the pages
    & poetry of ages
    All that teenage fury
    I hope you wrote that down

    I admit that
    At the start it shook me
    I confess, it took me
    Several months of fury
    To burn that city down
    But now that I am older
    My blood seems to run colder
    & I don't get that feeling
    When you are around

    In its stead, I have steady hands
    In its place, I am making plans
    In the space where I used to spit & scream
    There is measurement of temperament
    I cultivate my teenage dreams

    So again, into the fray
    Again, go see you play
    Again, just drum & bass
    Again, your perfect face
    But I don't care about the future
    & all I can say to you is
    I don't want to hurt you
    &, I don't think that you do
    Want for me to search you
    For your teenage fury
    Now that we are grown

    So it stands, a monument
    Still there
    The same thing, self aware
    Just shadows in the dark
    My favourite work of art
    I think it's finished
    Shall we hang it in the gallery?
    All that teenage fury
    Of my very own
