bashful dancing scandal roseanne

do you have nightmares
having to dance by yourself
you missed dancing school

go to make up class
just you and one cute boy
yankee doodle dandy

this really happened
but he was in the wrong class
missing because ill

so embarrassing
“my yankee doodle sweetheart”
mothers saying cute

but now i wake up
the nightmare is waking up
realize you are ill

has happened a lot
over the last fourteen years
everyone staring

silly recurring
wishing you could go to class
trade off bashfulness

but scary nightmares
husband said like steven king
never ever seen

people write nightmares
wise man told me to forget
a brilliant idea

i quit watching scandal
nightmare about roseanne barr
realizing why

olivia cut
tracking chip from mother’s back
roseanne dug mine out

dolphin, sunny and 76

i was closing in
three ducks walk up diving board
said i’m sorry

i have no bread now
they walk back down the ramp
despising my guts.
.

if i had a nickel
for every time my husband said
don’t stand still

stay in the car don’t
stand still they got me today
wasn’t standing still.

(way way way out thinking / i’m not batman)

master waist deep throws
ball way out to sea dog swims
over waves fetching

wearing red leash
ready to help dog ,punch man
spot fins behind dog

five dolphin playing
spinning around dolphin flashes
want to play too

ocean a gorgeous blue
mullet pirouette
dolphin demi plie .

Testing the Water

i step into pool
man says “it’s only cool
to the touch” funny guy.

Walking on Beach
.

“you live here don’t you?
every time i come
keep up the good work” okay.
