Does She Want To Dance? Romantic ConTEXTing Haiku

June 25, 2016

Eric Michels, lead singer of Foreign Figures, sang at an LDS conference I attended … and inspired these two pieces
(OK. His mom helped).

Does She Want To Dance, Like Me?
I’ve wondered what it /
would be like to find someone/
fearless to dance with.

AND
Showing Feelings Au Contraire
Her son said it’s hard/
for dudes to show their feelings./
That brought me to tears.

Here is part of Eric Michels’ performance — June 2016
