Eugene Corr

Ended up in SF head­ed back to BART after mid­night — girls in their teens and twen­ties in tight shiny dress­es, high heels, make­up, care­ful­ly coiffed and sexy a few hours before but now stum­bling, hair­dos com­ing apart, dress seams split­ting on the heav­ier girls, the skin­ny girls with pim­ples in back­less dress­es, shiv­er­ing in the cold: some­thing adorable, vul­ner­a­ble, and inef­fa­bly ten­der. The boys/young men with their pants around their knees every bit as vul­ner­a­ble, try­ing to look good not try­ing to look good. A few sweet boozy slop­py kiss­es. New Year’s Eve. I missed you.
