Watching Janet Jackson on MTV

When she danced on my screen
it was like smiling at dusk…
It kept me from thinking
of rain and the darkness
of the code I was writing
of being alone in my dorm…
the winter I worked on my thesis
I stayed in Oak Ridge.


For Marian’s prompt on Janet Jackson at toads.

  1. I remember being mesmerized by her but this song Marian gave us surprised me a bit. I haven’t listened to her in ages, but boy is she auto tuned and I couldn’t understand half of what she sang… I’m obviously getting old.
