Teach me to fly

What if we threw dreams like parties?
We'd invite all our friends
stand there holding plastic red cups of homemade margaritas
chat up a stranger
"Great dream, huh?"
"yeah, I've never skied on telephone wires or talked to pandas."
"True, but did you see her neighbor's kid snuck in to throw a temper tantrum?"
If mine was good enough, you'd invite me to yours, right?
Maybe then I'd finally stop losing my teeth and you'd teach me to fly.

Thanks, Judith.
And nope, never had a naked dream. Well, other than the good kind.
