Cheerios dance when you dance.
Morning is all octaves between head & foot. 
Between head.
One source of sugar is a banana - another: 
Lively Up Yourself, Charlie Hunter Quartet.
See, there's something to a chicken, dancing, funk.
Through the grates, the reddish housecoat	
is a woman   morning coffee	
a foot tapping, cat scatting 
	from her window nap.
Wait a minute, 
	wait a second: 
(The turn) or place words won't follow, stir 
the kitchen,	or explain the way
Cheerios - Sliced bananas - & a foot & head have to dance.
