Whispers to How To Wash A Car With A Baby
Whispers coming from the dance floor
Whispers coming from a dirt car to a father
Whispers (free form poem)
You couldn’t help but feel her moves
Calling you in whispers so loud so loud
Do you want more You want more You want more
I draped my arms around this soft pearl
The music held us to explore
Take me to your world she whispers whispers
Let’s make it whirl Make it whirl Make it whirl
Time then stopped and people disappeared
We rose to our heaven apart
Whispers echoing She wants to wants to
Still the beat of the music… or is it my heart
For this moment, two transform to one
She feels my thoughts. I share her form
What need for whispers when her eyes her eyes
The midnight sun… time for fun. I’m undone.
The dance floor transforms in this free form poem. The most notable thing about this poem are the echoes. The breaks represent a change in scene: for example, in the first stanza he is looking at her. In the second stanza they are dancing together. And so forth...
Years of practicing (I'm a slow learner) didn't go to waste. Arlene and I were pretty good dancers. We weren't professionals, but we went out dancing a lot. One of our most memorable evenings was when The Crew, Arlene and I were part of, went down to Tingles with Gary and Gloria Poole. Gary and Gloria were a brother and sister dance team and Disco Dance Champions. They were also close cousins of Valerie, a member of The Crew. Gloria and I had a crush on one another, way back when, but it never evolved into anything.
Gary heard about how good Arlene and I were on the dance floor. He had an ego equal to mine. He challenged me to a dance show down. Gary, being a big star, had no problem talking the Tingles' owner into the show down. Arlene and I chose Malo's "Suavecito" as our song. We were doing pretty good until I made a mistake. I had Arlene close to me and looked into her eyes. All of the sudden the crowd of people disappear. We forgot about the competition. There was only the music and us two. Needless to say, Gary and Gloria blew us away. Later that evening, Gary told Arlene and me that he saw, on the dance floor, why people enjoyed watching us dance.
(If the poem suggests something more - maybe)
In today's world, more than ever, we are constantly under the mold of group think. We are told what is in style, what is beautiful, what to believe, what is important. Our computers are making it easier and easier to gather information about us. Information to mold us. To make us easier to control. There are some instances when group think is valuable: like safety and emergencies, for example. But what is important to our life is what we believe. What is important to us? It is vital that we cultivate this in ourselves and in others. Some may believe in a supreme being, while others may not. It's okay. We can still live happily together. So it is with all things. The only rule is that we and our beliefs should not hurt anyone or anything. This is our life. That is their life. The wonder of it all. That individuals, who are all different, can exist together. And together we can win our freedom and Enjoy.
Back at the dance: Malo "Suavecito"
Speaking about freedom, does your car need washing
According to Professional Carwashing and Detailing the best car wash in America is Mister Car Wash, headquarter in Tuscon, Arizona. This company was established in 1969 and is now operating in 20 states. If there is not a Mister Car Wash near you Jordan Watson, of How to DAD, has another idea.
Now fathers, pay close attention. "HOW TO WASH A CAR WITH A BABY"
