All the Skinhead Girls I Ever Went Out With

Moonstomp is the first fiction I've successfully written. I normally write poetry and have been gigging as a poet with my writing for about 35 years. I've recently been writing a series of poems about girlfriends I had in my youth. many were skinhead girls. Here is one of the poems, and don't worry; there are none in the novel.

All the Skinhead Girls I Ever Went Out With

Were tougher
than me,
had to be.
Most could shut
a pub to silence.
All could talk
‘til the Monopoly
boot came home.
The blue of
Levi jackets
and jeans
echoed
india ink
tattoos.
Their eyes
the same green
as the liquor
gracing their
double double.
On Saturday night
I heard ‘Ali Baba’
and I wanted
my dream last
night last night.
Her monkey boots
scraping my shin,
the stick
of cinema carpet
as the adverts
finish
and the action begins.
