What if the Baby Boomers
Tweeted their teenage
Diaries in time?

Notes to this poem…
Now there’s an idea! If you know someone from the Baby Boomer generation who had diaries during their teenage years, get them to tweet it bit by bit (or update on Facebook), in real time like entries on the same dates of the year, or offset by some amount if they can’t wait till January to start. We could then see what life was like and things they might have shared. They’d keep private stuff they wouldn’t share today, of course, only sharing stuff they might have if they had social media back then and with the open nature of social media today.
The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
