when the storm comes

there’s a choice

avoid it

or learn to dance in the rain

today I dance

left foot right foot right foot left foot

the moon is on my side

it pokes its head out to watch

the clouds move slow

the rain comes down fast


left right left right

I keep dancing

there’s a storm coming

it’s always coming

you can see

maybe today

maybe tomorrow

I choose to dance

when the storm comes I’m dancing

I wave hello and I move

left foot left foot right

right foot left foot left

I see it

I feel it

it feels me

let it rain

because I choose to dance

Moon in the sky

I walk outside, toothbrush buzzing

It's electric so it runs out every few days or so

Then I charge it and brush my teeth

The grass is a little wet from the evening dew

There's been rain lately so it's soft under foot

It feels good

real good

My teeth feel cleaner too

If you've got an electric toothbrush

You've got nothing to complain about

I look up at the moon and keep brushing

It's bright and full

Looking back down at me

only me

It's not only me but it seems like it

I want my teeth to be bright and clean like the moon

The sky is clear but my mind is full

Full of the buzzing of the toothbrush

My eyes dissolve into the sound

I adjust my pants and look into the yard

The timer will go off soon

I look back up and the moon is still there

One of those sights you could never get tired of

That girl you see from time to time

Beauty, real beauty

Just like the moon

The timer goes off

I rinse my mouth out and go to bed

Moon on my mind


Blue as blue could get

You know one of those things

The thing you can’t forget

A simple hair clip

Two of them

that was it

All you need

All you need to remember

You roll up, she’s there

Thursday morning

not Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday


Her name could be Thursday

Thursday with the blue hair clip

Two of them

Who ever forgot

how could you

You can’t

You dress up nice, real nice

So she see’s

Thursday doesn’t have to dress up

Maybe one day you’ll ask

Ask for more than coffee

Let’s go for dinner Thursday

not Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday

next Friday


Somewhere nice,

real nice
