Green yellow green yellow green yellow. Green white yellow. Balls and hoops flying over. Ballet dancing

between the 2. Lovely but confused ways. Light but set on time and accuracy. Conformed but free in their

ways. Funny but look for it.

Can you dance when the balls are in the air? Can. You dance. When the balls. Are in the air?  Can you

dance    when   the balls    are in the. Air?   Can you dance when the balls are in the air?  

 Yes I can because I am cooler than you.

Yellow green white yellow green white yellow green yellow green yellow green white yellow green yellow

green yellow green.

Red red  red  red  red  red red.     Dead.
