Something from High School

OK, my favorite favorite favorite Pet Shop Boys song is the duet they did with Dusty Springfield, "What Have I Done to Deserve This" (if you want a treat, go and watch that video on YouTube; it always makes me feel good), but I have a bit of a soft spot for their remake of "Always on My Mind," hence the title of this poem... So yeah, here's a nostalgic poem. Always on My Mind Chorus after chorus, layers of indistinguishable beats. I couldn’t tell the Pet Shop Boys were gay even when they played love songs to each other. I didn’t know gay people except two math teachers with very short hair but they weren’t for sure.
