Just eighty-four, Grandma
Jives to Michael Jackson,
Jogging memories of
Jumping into fox trots
Jolts of Charleston dance,
Joyous beat of brass bands,
Jubilant flapper times.

Premium Member a muse abused

I'll just step
very softly,
tip toe,
on this blank page.
My inner critic?
fast asleep!
I'll tap dance,
while he snores.

Poof goes the jazz hands 
A trimmer in the extremities
