something about astronauts and poo

 

I stopped going to my dance class

as they put the price up

and the teacher annoyed me

saying something about English 

'not being my first language',

when we were going to do some creative writing

 

I don't look English, but I am English

I am the product of Italian immigrant parents

BUT

my English is good-and

I can't help the way I look!

it is wrong to assume things

and sometimes the group can be cliquey -

which also put me off

BUT

I bumped into the two hippy ladies that I chat to

and decided to go back

while the teacher is away on her hols-

one week, free dancing

then, drumming for 2 weeks
 

ha ha!

had giggle with hippy ladies
something about astronauts
and poo
(you had to be there)

they asked where I've been

and will I go to the drumming workshop
next week?

hmm...I'm
still pissed off with the teacher
may never go back(didn't say that to them)!

BUT

did the drumming workshop
a big, hairy lady, with the long, flowing skirt
and ethnic rugs
told us to
'connect our roots from our feet to the centre
of the earth-
connecting ourselves and our wombs'

oh crikey!
I have no womb to connect- as I've had surgery

BUT
apparently, I still have the 'energy'

what do I want to drum for?
have no idea
just want to drum

BUT

I mumbled something about wanting to have fun

BUT

it was kind of serious, and earnest
we drummed for clarity and peace
we drummed for compassion
then we finally drummed 
for fun
yay!

we made some kind of racket
and I danced a bit

not sure if I will return...

BUT

who the hell knows?!
