Cool brick, slick, wet pavement, weak light creeps into the alley

The embrace smelling of Polo cologne, cigarettes and a warm denim jacket

Pressed into one, kissing hungrily, his hands running across her back

Oblivious to the world, outside of theirs.

Trifecta: Week Thirty-One:  This week’s word is:

ALLEY (noun) 3: a narrow street; especially : a thoroughfare through the middle of a block giving access to the rear of lots or buildings


About KimB

I am a mommy to 3 wild and wonderful boys, wife to my husband. I am a stay-at-home mommy, who would like to work if the perfect job came along. Trying to find a way to make money from home so we can have more of the "wants" not just the "needs". We live in the sort of-country and have a pretty big garden, but no animals, except one small, dark, and furry dacshund.

    I swear I smell Polo and cigarettes now!

    Age isn’t mentioned here, but I’m thinking high school? Maybe because I dated a guy in H.S. that wore Polo…who knows! (We don’t have alleys in our area, so this kids here go to movie theaters :))

      I think that combination was a smell that only an eighties high school girl can appreciate.

        I swear I share this memory♥ Jim, Levis 501 jeans, Springfield Illinois, after a Bryan Adams concert.ah….A whiff of Polo transports me even now…

        Wow. This was from Decatur, Illinois…maybe it’s strictly a central Illinois phenomenon!

    I had a few moments like that back in the day. You captured it nicely!

    This definitely went on in alleys, at least in the ones I knew. AND with the same Polo cologne because that was so big back in the day. You’re right, that was the guys smell! Made me kiss my first boyfriend.

  6. good capture of so many alleys I can think of in my history …

    I like “weak light”. I totally get it. Great job in such a short space!

  8. I remember Polo. And what my friend called bomber jackets. Thanks for bringing it all back.

  9. Nice, you gave enough details to bring back memories, but left enough out to keep us wondering. A great mix, thanks for sharing this!

    Polo and denim jackets. I think you’ve nailed it! Thanks for linking up. I like your restraint here. Nice job with the prompt. Hope to see you back soon.
