This poem was published in Teen Magazine in the early 1970's. It was written by me under my name then, Jean Burr Smith. I wrote it when I was fifteen.

nice poem.. well portrayed.. but it's a waste of time spending a life in the thoughts of a flirt...for they rarely change... better to think of future.
