Stanley Kubrick for Look Magazine, 1949
Match flame to black and white,
young bodies exhaled 50’s morality
into the brooding gray of rebellion.
Tight skirts, tight sweaters rode curves
to crash into the heat of broad shouldered lust
and answered questions unasked in Sunday school.
Youth rocked mom and dad’s world with voices
that rose above the noise of fire and brimstone
to announce life had a new set of rules.
