Like, Wow man

For Marian’s prompt at Real Toads…One Word – Groovy


Like, Wow man
“Woodstock was both a peaceful protest and a global celebration.” Richie Havens

I vaguely remember standing in the mud,
stoned out of my mind rocking to Jimi Hendrix
rocking out on Star Spangled Banner.
I turned to my cousin Billy and we both smiled.
Groovy man.
Until that damned brown acid hit.


****an announcement was made at Woodstock to avoid the brown acid. It’s a bad trip man.  My cousin Billy who had hitched a ride with me looked me and at we went, oh shit.  We had both bought some.  LOL

    Whoops! Seems like maybe another poem for the moments after this. 🙂

    Groovy indeed until the trip went south… I can just imagine the hangover.

    …iconic – but I would have so hated it. Too crowded and I have awful hangovers. I’d had been sick the whole time.
