"I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud. I want my everyday to make God belly laugh, glad that he gave life to someone who loves the gift, who will use it up and wring it out and drag it around like a favorite sweater." -SN

While dancing upon my toes
is when my happiness shows.
I twirl and I bound
to the classical sound
as I imagine my audience in rows.

It's so simple, yet charming. I feel as if I'm a ballerina on stage, dancing to Brahm and imagining an audience. 5/5:)

When asked about race...

"Well, when I went to the bathroom I was Russian, and when I came out I was Finnish."

or, alternatively:

"Irish I could tell you."

I can imagine you flying across the floor this way and that, in a dancing soar. Beautiful work. This poem is a streak of talent among the other works on here, which often come off as cliche. :)
