First Word: Danette Beavers: Sugar

That’s What You Do to Me


lift me out of my chair
onto the dance floor

jitterbug me up the walls
I find myself

shimmying across the ceiling
jazz hands out the window

on to the roof top
Benny Goodman’s

“Sing, Sing, Sing” trumpets scream
trombones slide feet

one-two-three, one-two-three
rock, step

my feet lift
sweet clarinet one-two, one-two

over the moon
I say hey to the cow

as I come back down
a hard descent

back to the ground
where you are not

and I’m full of insulin and dizzy

for one more dance
another sweet taste

of you.
