Teach me to dance
teach me to cry uncle
teach me to smile
over my underbite

And, can I learn to love?
Am I old enough?
or learn to make out
without getting caught
in the rubber bands?

We are screaming souls
laces untied
only God knows sometimes

We are leaving no
traces behind
only our clothes sun-dried

We are leaving no
traces behind
screaming Cohoes Falls

Maybe we will
all go to Africa
maybe we will
all go to Germany
and take off our shoes
for security
our tray-tables up
our seats backwards-forwards
for safety
