WINTER 2019-2020


Margarette Wahl

BACK IN 90210

Can we travel back in time,
to a place of high school dreams?
Remember your dark brown eyes
with scarred eyebrow charm.

Return to the teenaged drama 
in Beverly Hills richness.
Let’s sit in the Porsche 
of Dylan McKay
relive your life,
let you know
your mother’s drinking problems 
were everyday,
your father’s mafia connections 
How Brenda was a bitch anyway.
Kelly stole your dreams,
Valerie had head games to play.

The stroke you had as Luke Perry
so unexpected, 
reminds us the quickness 
of life’s passing.
Sitcoms, reruns play 
keeping you pubescent 
and still alive.


Margarette Wahl, a Special Ed Teacher Aide and Poet from Long Island, is published in a number of Anthologies including Performance Poets Association Literary Review, Bards Initiative, Oberon, and more.
