Dreamers 4-To Roea c. Wallace from 1986

Dreamers #4-To Roea C. Wallace

Dance the Dreams
Dance as the Dreams
Dance as the Dreams crash from mountains
onto the rocks right before
the thrilling sea

Dance as the dreams are stabbed on city streets
hit flash on parked un painted
un loved au to
mo biles

Dance as the dreams are buried,
among time and circumstance
yet rise to dance again
among mint bur laps and rolling wrecks
from New Or le ans to Phladelpohia
from the grave of Marie LeBeau to the graves Africa
from the graves to grace
from the grave to grace
from grave to Spring Garden screech

Dance and people listen to your dreams
they cannot not
some hear the dogs in the morning
you hear the dance rising up
you dance the dream

Thank You


Bob Small 8-25-86
Inspired by Roea’s performance in the Open segment at
Abe’s Steak House on 8/22/86. These are the days we will speak of later.
Not a love or lust Poem but she does have the spiciest underarm
hair I’ve ever seen on a woman.
Revised sparingly on 4/20/16
